This jug by Josef Hoffmann is characterized by a gentle flow that runs all the way from its bulged corpus over the curved spout and into the handle, which arches up to form an elegant loop. Hoffmann’s maxim clearly was the smooth flow of lines, with no edges or ruptures whatsoever.
Again it’s the detail that makes the jug special: its brim is marked by a double round profile that continues all the way into the handle.
