Enamel sign / Porcelain sign, convex, thickly stenciled, also lithographed, Fribourg/CH c. 1905, 51 x 75 cm, Eisenwerke Gaggenau A.G. Gaggenau i/Baden, a monumental masterpiece by the Swiss artist Emil Cardinaux, whom we would like to portray in more detail on the opposite pages. The scenery is stylized and yet picturesque - in a snowy landscape a fox sits waiting in front of a tree full of ravens - it is by no means the birds he is after - much more he has his eye on the chocolate package one of the ravens is carrying in its beak. It is one of those signs that you think you will never get to see, never be allowed to touch, let alone ever be able to call your own. Accordingly, it is our greatest pleasure to offer you this special rarity, in a quality that seems fabulous, gloss and colors are wonderfully preserved, scratches are almost in vain, only the upper right corner has small, ancient mounting damage - and yet the sign must have hung exposed for decades, because a barely visible, minimal lime trace above the right rim testifies to a "life" in the wild. In the future, it will certainly illuminate the walls of an enviable collector.

  • Notes:
  • Emailschild, gewölbt, dick schabloniert, zudem lithographiert, Fribourg/CH um 1905, 51 x 75 cm, Eisenwerke Gaggenau A.G. Gaggenau i/Baden, ein monumentales Meisterstück des schweizer Künstlers Emil Cardinaux, den wir auf den gegenüberliegende Seiten gerne nochmals näher portraitieren. Die Szenerie ist stilisiert und doch pittoresk - in einer Schneelandschaft sitzt ein Fuchs wartend vor einem Baum voller Raben - es sind mitnichten die Vögel, auf die er es abgesehen hat - viel mehr hat er die Schokoladenpackung im Auge, die einer der Raben im Schnabel trägt. Es handelt sich hierbei um eines dieser Schilder, die man meint nie zu Gesicht zu bekommen, nie berühren zu dürfen, geschweigen denn sie jemals sein Eigen nennen zu können. Entsprechend ist es uns die größte Freude, Ihnen diese besondere Rarität anbieten zu dürfen - und das in einer Qualität, die sagenhaft erscheint. Glanz und Farben sind wunderbar erhalten, Kratzerchen sucht man nahezu vergebens, lediglich die obere rechte Ecke hat kleine, uralte Montageschäden - und doch muss das Schild jahrzehntelang exponiert gehangen haben, eine kaum sichtbare, minimale Kalkspur oberhalb des rechten Rabens zeugt von einem "Leben" in freier Natur. Fortan wird es sicher die Wände eines beneidenswerten Sammlers erleuchten.

On the day of the auction, bidders present at the auction shall pay the auctioneer or an authorised representative the hammer price, premium and VAT due upon acceptance of the bid in cash. Remote bidders will receive an invoice for the hammer price, buyer's premium and VAT due at the time of the hammer blow, which they must pay within the period stated therein. Dispatch shall be effected after receipt of payment and at the purchaser's expense. The costs for postage and packaging will be calculated according to the amount of the invoice.

In Germany the shipping costs are up to 800,00 € value = 15,00 €, up to 2500,00 € value = 20,00 €, up to 5000,00 € value = 25,00 €, up to 10.000,00 € value = 30,00 € and up to a value of 15.000,00 € = 35,00 €.

For EU countries we charge up to a value of 800,00 € = 25,00 €, up to a value of 2500,00 € = 30,00 €, up to a value of 5000,00 € = 35,00 €, up to a value of 10.000,00 € = 40,00 € and up to a value of 15.000,00 € = 45,00 €.

We ship worldwide. For shipments to countries outside the EU, the parcel prices are calculated individually according to the country and labour costs, customs duties, etc.

A packaging flat rate of 5.00 € is added to the shipping costs.
These conditions refer to one parcel. If there are several parcels, additional costs and effort will be invoiced separately. For objects that have to be sent as bulky goods (larger or heavier than the standard DHL or Hermes allows), an additional flat rate of 50,- € will be charged. For bulky goods outside the EU, the price must be determined individually according to parcel size. Fragile objects should generally be collected by the customer. If shipping is nevertheless desired, we charge 30,- Euro per hour for packaging and time expenditure. The commissioning of a forwarding agent is the responsibility of the purchaser. The organizer cannot accept any liability for possible transport damage. If the purchaser wishes additional insurance, this shall be at his expense. The postage and packaging costs only apply to packages for the shipping services contractually bound to us.

If a buyer does not collect his parcel from the post office in time and it is therefore returned to the auction house, he will be charged for the costs of returning and resending the parcel.
