Peche’s first important public acknowledgement took place in 1913 in the magazine "Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration" where, in volume 32, the author Rene Delhorbe composed a 13-page documentation. He wrote, amongst other things, "he reminds us that life can be free, sensual and light-hearted, for which he has earned our thanks. ... It is seldom that an artist is so multifaceted. ... Peche is first and foremost an architect but he is also a wood carver and painter. I think I can say, without fear of exaggeration that Peche’s work is in a certain sense unique within our art movement." The vitrine is there, on page 367, illustrated as part of a living room and thus one of his rare early pieces of furniture. Unfortunately, Peche died only 10 years later at the age of 35.


Provenance: the parents of the previous owner have received the piece directly from Berta Zuckerkandl
