Fruit Bowl & Knife Set
by Carl Auböck
A sculptural fruit bowl & knife set designed and made by Carl Auböck II, Austria, circa 1955.
Formally known as Model #4640 the set consists of a carved walnut wood bowl with a cork insert and a set of six stainless steel knives with horn clad handles. Both the horn and walnut contain brilliant colour variation and movement in their grain and warm even patinas.
Each knife is stamped with Auböck, Stainless, Made in Austria. The bowl carries the Auböck signature to the underside.
