Brass "Hand" #4223 paperweight designed by Carl Auböck. This timeless mid-century design of a splayed hand was a favorite of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, who kept a paperweight hand on his desk along with several other Auböck-designed objects. This incredibly refined and sculptural piece is cast in solid brass from the original cast and carries the Werkstätte Carl Auböck stamp on its side.
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.
