Carl Auböck (1900-1957), a painter and designer, is one of the most remarcable artists of Austria. After a series of different apprenticeships (for example as a bronze worker) and studies ( Academy of Art in Vienna) he takes over the workshop of his father in 1926. While he aligns his craft work with his customers of Vienna and the USA, he also tries himself out as a painter and creates master pieces of the Austrian classic modern art.
At the beginning of the 40ties, he develops an extraordinary style for everday-life subjects, which made him famous internationally.
Made of stainless steel and hand-stitched leather. Stamped "AS rostfrei" (= stainless in German) and Solingen.
Light signs of wear (minor scratches, discolorations on the leather and some tiny stains ), but great vintage condition overall.
Good vintage conditions with traces of age and use.
