Large Carl Auböck Model #4219 'Hands' Brass Bookends.


Designed in the 1950s, this incredibly refined and sculptural pair of bookends are executed in polished brass. Hand fully rotates and can be positioned palm outward or inward depending upon preference. These substantial pieces are ideal for art books and vinyl LPs.

Auböck's design career was long and varied, reaching its pinnacle of prestige at the Triennale di Milano in 1954, where he received four gold medals.
