WMF (Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik - W.M.F.)

The Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF) is a German company that specializes in the production of metalware, including tableware, cutlery, and decorative objects. The company was founded in 1853 in Geislingen an der Steige, Germany, and quickly became known for its high-quality products and innovative designs.
WMF has a long history of collaborating with leading designers and artists to create unique and distinctive pieces. Some of the most famous names associated with WMF include Albin Müller, who designed the company's iconic "Ikora" range of decorative objects in the 1920s, and Hildesheimer Rose, a popular Art Nouveau pattern that was introduced in the late 19th century.
WMF has also been a leader in the development of new production techniques and materials. In the late 19th century, the company pioneered the use of electroplating to produce silver-plated items, which were more affordable than solid silver but still had a luxurious appearance. WMF also experimented with new materials, such as glass and ceramics, to create unique and innovative designs.
Today, WMF continues to produce high-quality metalware products that are prized by collectors and connoisseurs of fine tableware and decorative objects. The company's commitment to innovative design and quality craftsmanship has ensured its enduring legacy as one of the most respected metalware manufacturers in the world.
