The Viennese workshop of Carl Auböck combines traditional craftsmanship with modern design. A metal workshop founded in the 19th century, Carl Auböck is still situated in its original premises in Vienna, with the fourth generation of the family now at the helm. The company is famous for the modernist designs designed in the 1950s by one of the best-known figures of Austrian modernism Carl Auböck II (1900–1957).
Made from solid brass, the Hand Paperweight was made from his original cast and will add a modernist's whimsy to any surface. The solid brass form was a favourite of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, who kept one of these paperweights on his desk along with several other Auböck-designed objects.
