The story is handed down in the Mahler family: As a Christmas present for his young wife Alma, composer Gustav Mahler envisioned a silver box, adorned with corals and designed by Kolo Moser. On Christmas Eve, it lay under the tree, a silver box in the shape of a love letter - the initials of Alma Maria Mahler and the date of handover on the envelope. Moser's original drawing stayed in our archives. Up to today it serves as the draft for this hand-made declaration of love.
