Wilkens & Söhne (est. 1810)
The company was founded in 1810 by Martin Heinrich Wilkens, making it one of the oldest and most traditional silversmiths worldwide. From the beginning, quality items for daily and private use were manufactured, and today the employees still follow the traditional manufacturing method, which requires both artistic and technical skills. Artists like Henrich Vogeler and designers like Peter Maly influenced the designs of the company and helped it to great notoriety. In 1969 M. H. Wilkens & Söhne merged with Bremer Silberwarenfabrik (AG) BSF under the style Wilkens Bremer Silberwaren AG. Today numerous top international restaurants and hotels are equipped with cutlery and table accessories by Wilkens, including the Jumeirah Beach Hotel Dubai and the Vier Jahreszeiten in Hamburg. (cko)
