The oldest traces of brass originate from China and are more than 6,000 years old. Early findings also originates in India and the Middle East. In Sweden, brass was manufactured at Vattholma brass mill 1571.

Like many brass mills, Gusums Messing started its business in the 17th century in the town of Gusum. The year of birth was 1653 and it is also visible in our logotype.

Not many brands have survived since the 17th century and therefore Gusums Messing becomes one of Sweden's oldest brands that are still alive.

Today, Mr Fredrik AB owns the Gusums Messing brand and manages it by developing replicas of older models, but also through new modern self-designed products.
