SITES WHERE SILVERWARE
WAS MANUFACTURED AND TRADED:
FRANZ BAHNER AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT

The firm, established by Franz Bahner in Düsseldorf (Germany) in 1895, was one of the most prolific flatware makers in Art Nouveau style.
After the death of Franz Bahner (1913) his heirs changed the manufactory into a share holding company until 1917 when the firm was purchased by Mansfelder Gewerkschaft.
The new owner changed the maker's mark to two crossed hammers with the letters "M" and "S" (standing for Mansfelder Silber).
Mansfelder Gewerkschaft was dissolved in 1962.
