Two decorations from artists who were not dealing with graphic designs as their main field of activity: the composition designed by architect Ernő Foerk pictures a stylized dragon-fly. It was published in the periodical Magyar Iparművészet (Hungarian Applied Arts) as a book tail-piece (later it was used on the advertisement card of Gábor Steinbach upholsterer, see Cat. 1902b Plat XLV). Sándor Abt, who was famous as a designer in the Zsolnay factory, created several decoration sketches at the end of the 1890s.
