The José Thenée Collection

When approached to carry a newly created lined of wall sheets I was intrigued.  Not just by the concept but by the content.  The wall sheets are handmade replicas of the sketches and pencil drawings of José Thenée of Argentina, arguably the best blacksmith in the world during the 1920’s.  His creations of lanterns and candelabras adorn embassies, government buildings, churches and private mansions all over Buenos Aires.

The José Thenée collection also includes select 11X17 sheets for individual framing, notelettes for jotting notes and of course note cards. Those with an appreciation for architecture, pencil sketching and anything paper will love this collection.

  1. Hi! My grandfather worked with José Thenée. I am from Bernal, Buenos Aires and am interested in knowing where you got those drawings. Do you have Thenée’s pictures as well? Do you know where can I get his pictures? Thanks!
