Vienna Silver Factory
With the Vienna Silver Factory, the city is regaining a piece of its cultural identity. The company has its roots in one of Austria's oldest handicraft businesses and can look back over more than 100 years of history. Founded in 1882, the factory had developed into an important partner of the Vienna Workshops by 1900. After the new takeover, this tradition will be continued. The new Vienna Silver Factory has all the rights of the former production company. The archive with its 11,000 design drawings, tools and punch molds, has also been transferred to the new owner, who is now having selected models faithfully reproduced.
The Silver Boutique at Spiegelgasse 14 offers highlights such as "Besteck 135" to a design by Josef Hoffmann of 1902 or Otto Prutscher's "Besteck 181" - an icon of early Art Deco. The clear and functional elegance makes these classics timeless objects. Also famous is the pumpkin set by Otto Prutscher from 1930. Besides bowls and candleholders based on models from the age of historicism, sophisticated dining culture is also catered for by modern designs.
