Furniture sign art nouveau
Metal goods from Lüdenscheid
Where else could you ask, since metalworking has been firmly rooted in this old industrial town in the Sauerland region for centuries. If a company based there still offers such a wide range of self-produced historic furniture fittings today as the family-owned company F. Tütemann, founded in 1873, it can still be considered remarkable. Unlike Tütemann, many competitors have long since abandoned the old forms and models (or import entirely from the Far East). We bring here a selection of furniture handles from the company's brass range.
For example: furniture signs. Elaborate with threaded rod
For furniture signs, over time, it has become common to fix them only with the help of fine screws or nails. However, if these signs are to have more than just an ornamental function and a furniture handle is connected to them, such a method of fastening may well - and even unintentionally - cause them to tear right off in use (just think of Loriot and the jerking cabinet drawer). Not so with these furniture signs from F. Tütemann, which are attached with a sturdy threaded rod.
Utility and Adornment. Furniture Fittings.
Historically, fittings were primarily intended to increase the usability of a piece of furniture; the focal point of their assessment was their practical use. Shields protected drawers, latches, corners, and edges against wear and tear in particularly stressed areas. All door knobs and drawer handles had to be particularly sturdy. The awareness of an ornamental value of such objects, on the other hand, came about later and only over the course of centuries. From the 12th century onwards, you find fittings that had a style-defining effect on their era. The Art Nouveau phase was particularly productive, creating a multitude of dainty floral décor ornaments.
European Diversity. Our Selection.
Nevertheless, the emphasis in our assortment is on the material as well as the origin of the individual articles. The century from which the design originates is less important to us. You won’t find cheap imitations from India and China in our selection; on the contrary, you will find products originating in Europe – with an emphasis on regions where the production of such fittings was traditionally at home. For example, the glass furniture knobs in our range come from a specialised glassmaking workshop in the Fichtel Mountains. One and all of our porcelain products derive from the cradle of French porcelain production, from the city of Limoges. And an iron foundry in the Ardennes provides us with the iron teacup handles. Last but not least, we have our pick’s brass furniture plates and handles made in Lüdenscheid in the Sauerland region, a traditional centre of metalworking in Germany.
Your Design Options.
You can use the fittings to embellish old furnishings or replace existing, possibly defective parts with functioning ones. Upgrade the long-cherished flea market find in a heartbeat. Deck out a self-made piece of furniture with the fittings it deserves: smooth-running castors and charming handles.
