A very unusual form of smoking / candle stand from 'Goberg' Hogo Berger. It is adjustable in height and is stamped underneath 'Made in Germany', the top of the stand is in the form of a viking ship with all parts present and in good order. Meaures 113cm high when extended and 78cm when down with a base diameter of 23cm.

In 1895 Hugo Berger (Goberg) started in Schmalkalden Germany his first metal factory, were decorative ironwork was manufactured in a traditional way.

Typical of Goberg's work are the use of honest materials such as iron and brass. The manual character clearly catches the eye. His style, method and materials matched perfectly with the Arts & Crafts movement, a very popular style at that time.

In the early 20th century he became well known worldwide, due to the fact that the leading department store Liberty and associated stores, were selling much of his work.
In the Netherlands Goberg objects were sold at
Metz & Co.
