In the case of metal vessels, an attasche is a (mostly riveted) holder for handles or a movable handle.
Round brackets: Numbers of the picture examples.
An attachment can be plate-shaped or cylindrical:
- The fitting -like plate-shaped attachments (for example also Kreuzattaschen ) have one or two ring-shaped eyelets for receiving the handles or handles (1, 2-5 ).
- In the case of roller-shaped attachments, the handle ends snap into funnel-shaped or hole-shaped depressions on the sides of the roller ( 6 ).
Attaschen are made as individual parts and later permanently connected to the vessel.
Attaschen can be designed simply, that is only appropriately ( 3 ), or they can be decorated. Commonly used decorations are:
|Deutsch||the attack||the attacks|
|English||the attachment||the attachments|
|French||the clip ||the ties|
|Italian||the attack (the) ||attacks|
|Spanish||the wall lamp ||the appliques|
The word Attasche is the Germanized spelling of the French noun attache (f.) From attacher "to fasten", and among other things has the meaning "means of fastening".
