Vintage Collection Available!

Walter Bosse Vintage

We recently acquired a selection of vintage new-old-stock items cast in the 1960s in Germany and are now releasing them for wholesale. Due to the vintage sand-casting and hand-finishing methods, every item is slightly different. Quantities are limited so once they sell out, they are gone! Stock sheet available by request, just drop us a line!

Limited Edition Custom Wooden Crates for Walter Bosse’s Hedgehogs

Walter Bosse Hedgehog Boxes
We aren’t able to share as much detail on the Fab sale so we thought we’d share some up close and personal photos of the boxes.

A little bit about the process: Each box is a custom made sliding lid wine box made of solid pine. We fitted the lid with some extra support struts and  hand painted the sides in matte black. The art was done with custom hand-cut Walter Bosse stencils. We think they came out pretty nicely!

Enjoy the gratuitous macro shots!

Custom Letterpress Certificates for Walter Bosse’s Hedgehogs

Walter Bosse Letterpress Certificates for Hedgehogs

Next up, we thought we’d share some up close and personal photos of the letterpress Certificate of Authenticity cards we produced specially for the upcoming sale.

A little bit about the process: Each card was hand printed with a Heidelberg Windmill on duplexed Eames solar white paper. The back was printed knockout in black and the front was printed with black and gold ink. The gold ink on the logo was then brushed with metallic gold dust, brushed with a feather an left to dry. The result gives it a unique textured metallic finish. Definitely a labor of love but we think it was worth it!

Enjoy more gratuitous macro shots!

Les Hérissons Noirs – Behind the Scenes Walter Bosse Hedgehogs Photos

Walter Bosse Hedgehogs Noir

Thought we would share some experimental behind-the-scenes shots for the newly released Bosse hedgehogs, their letterpress certificates and the wooden box. We decided to see how a black backdrop looked so we thought we’d call the set Les Hérissons Noirs.

I think they came out looking pretty classy! We probably won’t be able to use them anywhere but they are here for you to enjoy. What do you think? Better than the white backdrop?

Introducing the Walter Bosse Master Collection

We were recently given a very generous donation of vintage original masters by Walter Bosse and Herta Baller. These include bronze sculptures and everyday objects used for casting which are about 20% larger than finished items cast from these masters.

All have been sitting unused since the 1950s and came from the original collection of the Bosse/Baller company in Austria. Most are rusty from having been left in their raw state but some were given a patina and polishing. Most are very rough and were never used in production. A few items are completely finished items whose masters were lost, but the finished item was kept for later casting.

Enjoy the images below and in the Virtual Museum as well!
