Certain Things I Stalk: Dagobert Peche

There are certain objects I stalk without reason, salivating over items in auction catalogs whose estimates are far, far beyond my means. Ah well. Among the things I follow closely are objects associated to the Wiener Werkst├Ątte, and particularly Dagobert Peche.

This vase in the upcoming LAMA auction has me in raptures --

Textiles (in this case, used by Poirret for a gown) --

Laces (sample book from a Wright auction of early this year) --

And museum pieces that I would take up cat burglary to call my own:

Look at these strawberries!

And of course my favorite Adelphi paper, which is heavily influenced by Pesce's work.

Sigh. Will I ever have some Pesce to call my own?

Oh Gosh...I will easily be your partner-in-crime to just be in the presence of these beautiful articles. I want a house with each room papered in a different one of those Adelphi.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
