Waratah motifs in Wunderlich pressed metal panels1911
The Wunderlich company was one of Australia’s most significant building companies. Their designs are a feature of many prominent Sydney buildings. While Wunderlich panels were produced until the 1950s, changes in production and design led to the company’s decline, and Wunderlich was taken over by CSR Building Products in 1969.
Wunderlite now manufacture a range of original Wunderlich designs. The Waratah wall lining No. 1086 and the Waratah Dado panel No. 686 shown here are still being manufactured. (Written 2015)
