At the turn of the 1900s this was perhaps the largest maker of domestic metalware in the world.The German version of Art Nouveau known as “Jugendstil” was their speciality. They worked with influential and specialist designers. At their peak with 6000 workers in Germany Austria and Poland their elaborate catalogue showed some 3000 pieces. The catalogue in English was available in 1906 from their British headquarters in Fore Street, London. Founded in 1853 in Geislingen, Germany by 1914 they were able to say that they were able “to supply half the Globe with Electro-Plate and Art Metal-ware unaided”
