Carl Auböck

Hand Brass Letter Opener


We only have 1 left. To enquire about higher quantities, contact us here.

The witty open-hand silhouette of this brass letter opener is typical of the Auböck family workshop, founded by Carl Auböck I more than a century ago. His son Carl II designed it in the 1950s and successive generations still manufacture it by hand at the original Vienna atelier. 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.
