The fourth-generation Viennese workshop of Carl Auböck combines traditional craftsmanship with modern design. Designed in the 1950s by Carl Auböck II (1900–1957), this polished paperweight in the stylized form of a splayed hand was made from his original cast and carries the Werkstätte Carl Auböck stamp on its side. The solid brass object was a favorite of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, who kept one on his desk along with several other Auböck-designed objects.
This un-lacquered brass object will develop a patina over time. Polish by buffing with soft cloth. Brass polish may also be used; use a second clean, dry cloth to buff the brass to a shine.
