Weber-Staub-Briscoe architectural collection
This collection includes pattern boards (design molds) and metal castings of architectural details, such as stair rails, fencing, and other metalwork ornaments manufactured by Weber Iron & Wire Company from the 1930s to the 1990s. Some were designed by architects John F. Staub and Birdsall P. Briscoe.
Founded in the late 1920s by Herman Weber as Weber Iron Works, Weber Iron & Wire Company became instrumental in creating original designs and duplications of fine nineteenth-century ornamental ironwork and metalwork for the projects of many of Houston's leading architects and builders, most notably John F. Staub and Birdsall P. Briscoe.
The original materials are held by the Woodson Research Center in Fondren Library. Search the finding aid/inventory for the Weber-Staub-Briscoe architectural collection, MS 586.
