Vienna, Bier & Schöll, ca. 1900. 19 very large sheets (56 x 38 cm), numbered, with unique design. All but one in full colour, four with an identical, plain copy added (not counted), one tinted (for a total of 23 plates).
Each sheet shows a different, Jugendstil - or Art Nouveau - style design for applied art, such as a clock frame, wall or door decorations, leadlights, etc. The orientation is vertical. The Viennese firm Bier & Schöll specialized in applied art, and was active from the late 1800's until the 1920's. One plate is from another firm, Clement, Tournier & cie., in Geneva. The illustrator's logo, "P.P.", is stylized in the form of an Art Deco figurine. It's possible that the Geneva firm was the successor of Bier & Schöll. A very attractive set of fine, large plates.
