Desirable, early Wilhelm Furtwaengler Autograph

Desirable, early Wilhelm Furtwaengler Autograph: Hand-signed Photo. CoA

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

3,4 x 5,5 inches.  Very fine condition. No postcard, real photograph. Photo by Hans Dietrich & Co, Wien.

Wilhelm Furtwaengler (1886 -1954) was a German conductor and composer.

At his first concert, he led the Kaim Orchestra (now the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra) in Anton Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony. He subsequently held posts at Munich, Luebeck, Mannheim, Frankfurt, and Vienna, before securing a job at the Berlin Staatskapelle in 1920, and in 1922 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra where he succeeded Arthur Nikisch. Later he became music director of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Salzburg Festival and the Bayreuth Festival, which was regarded as the greatest post a conductor could hold in Germany at the time.

Towards the end of the war, under extreme pressure from the Nazi Party, Furtwaengler fled to Switzerland. It was during this troubled period that he composed what is largely considered his most significant work, the Symphony No. 2 in E minor.

Burned-in bottom seal: Hu Gong Ye Fu 壶公冶父. This refers to the famous producer of tea pots, Qu Yingshao 瞿应绍 (1780 – 1849).

Qu Yingshao’s works can be found in specialized books on antique Chinese tea post, his works are had to find, can be found in museums and are treasured among collectors.

7 x 4 x 5 inches. With guaranty that the object is older than 100 years.

The tea pot is in good condition, there are no cracks or fissures. At the bottom rim are 4 minor flaws. (Since the floral decor is convex, the borders of the deco- units easily can become chamfered)

The object really stands out when displayed since it’s design is so unusual and special.
