Not on view

Friedrich August Scherf and his son Walter founded the Metallwarenfabrik für Kleinkunst Walter Scherf & Co. in 1899. The manufacturer worked with noted designers, including Josef Hoffmann. Walter Scherf, who trained at the Nürnberger Handwerkkunst, Bayerisches Gewerbemuseum between 1903 and 1907, also designed for the company. With its delicately curved metalwork and mottled green stoneware, the centerpiece demonstrates the younger Scherf’s engagement with innovative Art Nouveau designs.
