Door handles for known and unknown buildings for more than 150 years
Søe-Jensen & Co. has sold door handles, rosettes, long signs, key signs, door hammers and much more to the Danes for more than 150 years. You will find our products in well-known and prominent buildings, and you will find Søe-Jensen in homes all over Denmark. And you should not be surprised if the property is more than 100 years old and still has the same Søe-Jensen door handles as when the property was built.
Door handles in homes and offices
In the second half of the 19th century, Copenhagen experienced a strong population growth and a consequent boom in construction. Brokvartererne and Frederiksberg shot up, and especially the properties in Frederiksberg and Østerbro were furnished with large and stately apartments, and the same was true in the province.
The type of housing where door handles are of course made of brass, which then as now is the most exclusive solution. Søe-Jensen & Co. grew with this construction boom, and we know for sure that our products have been used in a large part of these new buildings, as well as in buildings and dwellings built up through the 20th century.
SHARE YOUR SEA JENSEN & CO. DOOR HANDLE
How many homes, how many offices and exactly where they are located, yes we do not know. It was only rarely registered or was it only for a short period of time, for why, however, be interested in that kind? Today we look at it differently. We would like to know where at least some of our products have ended up. So if you suspect that a door handle, a door hammer or similar in your home or at your work originates from Søe-Jensen & Co., then take a photo and feel free to share it on our Instagram or send it directly to us by email and we will give you our best assessment.
