References: Kois, Clemens, Carl Auböck: The Workshop, Powerhouse Books, (2012); Auböck, Carl IV, die kataloge der werkstätte carl auböck 1925 - 1975, Carl Auböck Archive (2005) page VI/09.

Description: This rarely found design is pictured in the Kois, Clemens book on page 11, not as a selection of the designs listed in the index of the book, but from a still black and white photo taken of a craftsman in the studio with the bowl in his hand at a polishing machine.  It is large, thick and quite heavy.  A simple modern design that would have use for serving nuts, candies or dried fruits.  Marked as shown with the correct Auböck signature. 

Condition: Very good, but it has polishing marks we were unable to buff out.  We believe someone tried to polish it unnecessarily and perhaps used some type of polish that left the polishing marks.  This can be seen clearly in the photo of the bottom where the signature is found, but it can only be seen in certain light.  It does not detract from the beauty and elegance of this item.
