Publication: Cahier 3: Meesterlijk (zilver)design

The Design museum Gent dedicated its 2012 Cahier publication to the extensive silver collection of Wolfers. 

The richly illustrated Cahier 3 is written by Ko Goubert, formerly researcher at Design museum Gent. He has researched every object extensively. In addition to all silver and and other applied art objects made by Wolfers, the museum’s collection of furniture made for the private Wolfers residences is included in the catalogue. This approach contributes to a deeper understanding of the Wolfers production and of the art nouveau and art deco in Belgium in general.

The catalogue forms a part of Partage Plus, the Europeana project for the digitization and opening up of Europe’s art nouveau heritage.

Cahier 3: Meesterlijk (zilver)design. De Wolfersverzameling counts 135 pages (including an extensive hallmark repertory and bibliography) and is on sale for 12 euros from the museum shop.
