"A rarely seen take on the Belle Epoque from Czechoslovakian point of view other than that of Mucha's. Not that there's fault to be found with the intricacies and excesses of that particular master's handiwork, but one can't help but fall under the spell of this braided stunner as she drinks in her midnight beauty from the pearl-roped mirror she has procured from F. & D Maly treasure trove. Reisner's design for the jewellery and silver store situated at the Postovska corner of Wenceslaus Square, executed in deep luxuriant tones, perfectly mines the romantic indulgence of luxuriant self-spoiling without implying a single iota of avarice (greed)" (Rennert, PAI-XXX, 94)
