Horn Coasters in Holder Carl Auböck

£600
Description
A vintage set of six coasters complete with original carrying case designed and made by the Auböck workshop, Vienna, circa 1950. The coasters are carved solid Hungarian cow horn. Although each coaster is simply a small circular tray the grain and colours within the horn make each coaster a small sculpture. The colours to be found include black, green, brown, yellow and off white. The nickel plated steel carrying holder with cane bound handle, on first inspection, visually contrasts the coasters. However, the materials used on the holder are also natural and its form is also purely geometric. There is only a small amount wear to nickel plating on the underside of the holder and one coaster is slightly warped. Overall, both parts are in good condition and are very usable. Bottom of holder stamped with Auböck signature as well as Made in Austria.
