WMF

WMF (Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik) was a German manufacturing company that specialized in producing high-quality metalware and glassware. The company was founded in 1853 in Geislingen an der Steige, Germany, by Daniel Straub and Wilhelm Schweizer. In the early years, WMF produced a variety of metal products such as cookware, cutlery, and household items.

WMF is most well-known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco metalware, which was produced from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century. During this period, WMF employed many famous designers, including Albert Mayer, Paul Haustein, and Karl Wiedmann, who helped to create some of the most iconic designs in metalware and glassware.

WMF was known for its innovative techniques and quality craftsmanship, particularly in the area of electroplating. They developed a unique silver-plating process that was used to produce high-quality silverware, tea sets, and other household items. WMF also produced a wide range of glassware, including iridescent glass, which was particularly popular during the Art Deco period.

Today, WMF is still a leading manufacturer of high-quality metalware and kitchenware, with a focus on contemporary design and sustainability. The company is headquartered in Geislingen an der Steige, Germany, and operates in more than 40 countries worldwide.
