Pretzel Shaped Door Handles: Inspired By The Danish Baker's Guild Logo
A bakery that specializes in Danish kringle came to us wanting to have a set of pretzel shaped door handles made. They were looking for a specific image, the Danish Baker's Guild symbol, a pretzel topped with a crown. Many bakeries in Denmark have signs of the guild symbol hanging outside their business, even today. With the image in hand, our master blacksmiths created this unique set of custom door pulls that appear as a single object when the doors are closed but are actually two independent door handles. These pretzel shaped door handles provide the perfect introduction to this business.
The Baker's guild in Denmark has a special royal dispensation to portray the royal crown atop their symbol, called a baker's crown. This dispensation is actually extended for the baker's guilds throughout most of Europe. The story goes that in 1529 when the Ottomans besieged Vienna, the invaders tried to get over the city walls but could not. So they decided to go under the walls at night. Because bakers work in the night, to prepare bread for the next day, the bakers were awake and heard the Ottomans digging. They alerted the city soldiers who then collapsed the tunnels preventing the city from being overrun. As a reward, the bakers were permitted to crown their guild symbol, the pretzel, with a royal crown. The story behind the dispensation has not been proved historically correct, but is held as the common belief.
