Carl Auböck Brass and Leather Letter Opener


Carl Auböck II did some of his best work in brass and leather – like this letter opener, designed in the 1950s with a supple leather grip. Later generations of the Auböck family still produce it today at the old Vienna atelier, using the original designs and moulds. Please note, as this piece is made and finished by hand, slight markings and imperfections may occur. These only add to its unique character.

Carl Auböck

After years at the forefront of the Bauhaus and Wiener Werkstätte traditions, Carl IV still works in the same atelier with the original brass moulds. He has modernised the hand-worked desk sets with input from designers like Michael Anastassiades, yet the handmade ethos remains.
