The sweeping lines of the walls and handles of the white service in shape 20/21 (designed on 1930) correspond to the stylistic mood of our day.
The lids of the hollow wares also contribute to the perfection of the design. During production they are fitted precisely to the openings. The lids of shape 21 are made with knobs, those of shape 20 are decorated with the so-called “Exotic Heads”, created at the time of the original design.
The thinness of the walls and the glaze´s transparency and degree of Augarten´s white porcelain.
