When Otto Wagner (1841-1918) planned and build the Vienna buildingblock 38 on the left (Linke Wienerzeile 38), he was already a star amongst the achitects of the time in the Austrian capital. Not only was he involved for years in town planning, had build a whole series of iconic buildings in the city, but he was also an acclaimed teacher at the Academy and an acclaimed writer on town planning. He had made Vienna to the famous city of the art nouveau, better known as Jugendstil, the times of the Belle Epoque at the Fin de siecle. In his work on the Linke Wienerzeile 38 he worked closely together with a not less famous design artist, painter and graphic designer Koloman Moser (1868-1918), who was one generation younger, but had already made a name for himself. He was the co-founder of the Vienna artists association Secession, yet, the co-operation with Wagner on this building pushed his career even further. In the year that the building was finished, in 1899, Moser was made a lecturer in the Kunstgewerbeschule of Vienna, where he himself had studied (of course, he also studied at the Wiener Akadmie). 
The apartment building at 38 Linke Wienzeile is one of three Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) buildings and the golden embellishments can still be seen today, as they adorn these most imposing facades of the Viennese Jugendstil period. The central motif in Mosers composition are 9 portrait medallions. They show symbolically young women who represent the virtues, surrounded by feathers and flowered garlands.

Inspired by the art of Moser and the architecture of Wagner, 'The Golden Heart for Vienna' ('Das Goldene Herz für Wien, DGHW) has created a stunning series of 6 golden patterned porcelain mugs, that reflect the facades of this famous Viennese Art Nouveau buildings, one of which is our mug here.

These porcelain cups are specially produced by Kahla in Thuringia, Germany, and hand-decorated.
