    1. That is one of a pair. I often walk by of another, identical pair, on the front steps of Jugenstil villa. I have been told these are the only four that exist.

  6. Love that planter, and also it's "feet" - four tortoises keeping it upright. Wonderful whimsy.

  7. Fin de siècle Vienna showcases the architectural work of Adolf Loos, Otto Wagner and in this case of Joseph Maria Olbrich. I can't wait to see them all.

  8. Ahh Merisi, what a grand way to start a day. The light is full of promise. Like earlier commenters, I am completely taken by the photo with the planter; the patterns in that pictures make a marvelous composition. Wonderful balance, with that green a spark.
