See the book “Modern Art of Metalwork”, Brohan Museum, page 104- 119 for more details on Bruckmann & Sohne and the work of Carl Stock.
A rare and stylish claret jug made by Bruckmann and Sohne and designed by Carl Stock. It combines jugendstil design with Glasgow School stylised roses. The design quite probably drawn from secessionist Vienna, where Mackintosh and the Glasgow Four were highly influential. Bruckmann & Sohne were a major German silver manufacturer who, in around 1900, analogous to William Hutton in the UK, decided to employ artistic designers and architects to augment their range with modern art nouveau or jugendstil silver. Carl Stock, who is attributed with designing this claret jug, was their leading designer at the time.
