The unique and extensively published Cubist showcase with a superstructure of a clock by one of the most important representatives of Cubism, Josef Gočár, belongs to the iconic top models of this architect and designer. The showcase was made to order in the waiting room for Dr. Trapl. The extraordinary quality of workmanship or the unprecedented shape of the diamond fittings represent the top representation of that time.
To date, this piece of furniture has been found in a family of descendants, JUDr. Trapl. Consulted with the great-granddaughter of the architect Josef Gočár, Maria Fiřtová.
