Augarten Wien
Tea Cup with Saucer "Atlantis"

€132.25

(incl. 20% VAT)

This tea service "Atlantis" was designed for the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory Augarten by Josef Hoffmann, co-founder of the “Wiener Werkstätte”. It shows Hoffmann’s originality when it comes to design shape thanks to its characteristic, relief-like surface featuring a fish-scale design.

As the name and the fish scales would suggest, the tea cup is an hommage to the fictional island below the ocean - Atlantis. In Plato's works Timaeus and Critias the island famously fell out of favor with the gods and was submerged into the Atlantic Ocean.
