"Paper Knife" #4233 Letter Opener Wrapped in Leather by Carl Auböck

by Werkstätte Carl Auböck

designed in the 1950s, new


Leather-wrapped "Paper Knife" #4233 letter opener designed by Carl Auböck.  His timeless mid-century objects were favorites of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, who displayed several of them on his desk. This incredibly refined and sculptural piece is cast in solid brass from the original cast and wrapped in natural cane or leather. It carries the Werkstätte Carl Auböck stamp. 

Pieces are in continued production at the family-run Carl Auböck Werkstätte (workshop) in Vienna.  

Please note: Auböck pieces are made by hand, each one will differ slightly. Imperfections such as small marks on the surface of this item are evidence of the handmade production process and should not be considered defects.
