Exhibitors at the Schönbrunn Christmas Market have presented their creations on the theme of Schönbrunn.
Glass Christmas stag
The white-gold glass stag stands proudly on its solid oiled oak wood base. Michaela Lutz took inspiration for her Schönbrunn Edition from the White-Gold Room in Schönbrunn Palace. The king of the forest is made of twenty-four pieces, decorated with 24-carat ducat gold details with a loving hand-made finish. It formed the perfect addition to the sleigh from 2016.
Gisela Otasek-Hartl’s glass-blowing workshop produced noble flacons recalling the imperial past, when ladies at court used elegant glass bottles for their fragrant perfumes or reviving smelling salts. The free-form and hand-blown flacons were made of tough borosilicate glass and coloured with silver, gold or ruby gold oxides. Each flacon was unique.
Alderbaran glass-bead star
Benno Rohrbach’s filigree star is inspired by the Red Room in Schönbrunn Palace. It is named after Aldebaran, one of the brightest stars, which is particularly visible in the winter months. Benno thread 401 Czech cut-crystal beads by hand onto a single brass wire to form a magnificent red and gold star.
Imperial coach made of choice wood
The original eighteenth-century coronation coach, called the Imperial Coach, can be seen today in the Wagenburg Carriage and Vehicle Museum in the Schönbrunn Palace grounds. The horse and carriage by Peter Fülöp were made of cherry wood, and the wheels of maple. Unpainted to highlight the choice material, it reflected the splendour of the golden original.
