First, let me cite von Kerssenbrock-Krosigks and Kanowskis book, Modern Art of Metallwork: "By 1898, there were 230 factories and workshops for metalwork alone in Vienna, the capital city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire". However, after 1918, only three firms continued the silver plate production: Art. Klinkosch (already acquired by Berndorf) and Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops). I would like to present two little-known silver plate factories, which were active in Vienna at the end of the XIX - beginning of the XX centuries and disappeared after WWI: Moritz Hacker and J.
Without doubt, they both truly represent the Secession style, i. The Austro- Hungarian branch of Art Nouveau, in silver-plated holloware. The information on both firms is extremely scarce. According to Waltraud Neuwirths book, the Moritz Hacker foundry was founded in 1882. Besides these two facts, there is nothing else available both in the literature and the Internet.However, the extravagant design and high quality of silver plate make these two Austrian firms very desirable for the collectors.
