Muetzenfabrik

Article about: F.B. Reichenbach is about 10 km (6 miles) away from me. If you want, I'll make a photo of the building. If it is still standing.

    As it happens, this Lubstein cap has recently surfaced distributed by Hans Durbeck of Vienna.



    Notice the hand sewing of the schirm. There were no Pfaff machines around at this time to do the job.

    I saw this piece. Very nice and well made. People are entranced by the high tech forehead pressure free air cushion thingy a la system Lubstein. What little pressure obtains to their heads reminds them of the embarrassing fact that.....they.....have.....NO BRAINS.....to understand militaria and its social and economic context in the early 20th century.Click image for larger version.

    I suppose I should have you translate the Muetzenmacherei book with your thingy wingy, and I could make a killing, or we could both make a killing. But I am sure such a project would backfire. Besides, I am so busy with my adult responsibilities in turning in rental car contracts at 0755 hrs in foreign air ports on weekends to know which end is up....you know.

    I fully agree with your sentiments here, although not entirely in the same vane, i had occassion to learn two new skills, one was leatherworking producing many fine pieces ranging over a large number of subjects, this is a dying trade due to mass production, shortly into my learning the subject my tutor who was very experienced died and all his knowledge was lost, the second was as an armourer creating suits of armour in the traditional way working the metal and making chain maile then fitting the leather straps, again machines entered the trade and the people teaching me could no longer function at a profit thereby folded the company which was a small personal family business yet their offspring were not interested in carrying on, therefore two lost skills went the way of the dodo, needless to say i was not experienced in both in that i could carry on independently, modernising is an accepted practise but can interfere with true craftsmanship, you only have to look at a 500year old samurai sword or a medievel suit of armour and see how well they have stood the test of time

    My forehead pressure is always considerably lightened by your sense of humour FB!

    Hi Dave, what a shame that you were not able to continue with your apprenticeships. It's so refreshing to hear about people wanting to learn the traditional crafts. I'm actualy currently looking for a complete change of career myself. Looking at a PC screen for 8 hours a day doesn't satisfy me any longer. I'd rather be a motor mechanic or chef, anything that requires working with my hands and not just to push a plastic mouse around a desk!

    Humor is the only antidote to what passes for sanity in today's completely insane world. The crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th century represented a rebellion against the industrial age and its loss of meaning, a movement pioneered in Britain and which our craftsmen or craftswomen in Germany would well have understood. I hated social history when I was in graduate school in the 1970s, but there was more merit to it than I understood in my 20s, I guess.Click image for larger version.

    Of course, our subject itself manifested a reaction to all of this in an earlier age, as well, which should give us all sober pause as we yearn for some deeper meaning in our lives and in our work. All the same, the rationalization of work in the digital age likely has unforeseen consequences of a frightening nature, as did the previous industrial revolutions....Name:  RLB  00015201.jpg

    And it was further expressed in the trade journals that we now sift through in a search for deeper context to our study...
