Anyone familiar with influential designers, knows that German Bauhaus was one who had great impact during the last century. A recent Sotheby's auction of Bauhaus tea sets brought in tremendous amounts of money.
A very rare tea infuser by designer Marianne Brandt sold for a record $361,000.
Another tea set, circa 1927, was deemed "Theodore Wende's most important and impressive works of his avant-garde period" and sold for $181,000.
A Coffee Service set, circa 1926, was auctioned for $79,000.
