Vorbilder fÃ¼r Kunstverglasungen im stile - LyongrÃ¼n, A - 1900. 
Berlin, Bruno Hessling, 1900. Folio (48.0 x 33.9 cm). Title page, [iv] pp., 16 large chromolithographed plates in original pictorial portfolio with Jugendstil ornaments and lettering on the front board, and cloth spine.l An influentual and beautifully illustrated work on stained glass (leaded glass). The rear board contains a list of publications of "Bruno Hessling Buchhandlung fÃ¼r Architektur und Kunstgewerbe". The firm had two addresses, one in Berlin, and one on East 12th St., Manhattan, and must have been a bridgehead in America for influential European art movements. For instance, the influence on the design of Tiffany lamps seems evident. LyongrÃ¼n's designs seems to be derived, in part, from the works of the influential Jugendstil artist Anton Seder. Some very light soiling and discolouring to the plate edges, otherwise a fine, brightly coloured set. Rare. Schneider-Henn, 206.
