Silverplate maker / Metallwarenfabrik
Founded in 1866 in Stuttgart by Jakob Schweizer. In 1872 Friedrich Wilhelm Quist (1831-1903) shareholder and manager of the firm moved the factory to Esslingen. After the death of Schweizer (1886) the company was bought by Quist and Robert Eisenmann working under the name Quist & Eisenmann. In 1890 Quist took the whole property of the company. FW Quist was succeeded in the property by his son Fritz Quist who continued to manage the firm until his death in 1951 (in 1936 the company was transformed in GmbH). In 1959 Gerd Quist, fourth generation of the family, entered in the management of the firm. After an unsuccessful attempt to take control of WMF the company went bankrupt in 1981. The trade name QUIST together with utility models, tools and machines have been bought by
Bayerische Metallwarenfabrik BMF - Nürberg.

Established in 1903 by Franz Scheurle at Schwäbisch Gmünd, originally to manufacture small articles of silver, most notably silver umbrella and cane handles, and later, in the 1920's, cigarette cases, powder boxes, etc. Franz Scheurle died in 1929 and the business passed to his son, Gerhard Scheurle. By the 1950's the company were producing many products including napkin rings, lipstick cases, pill boxes, bottles, plates, cups, thimbles, key rings and photo frames, and the 1960's saw the introduction of jewellery to the firm's manufactures. In 1972 Gerhard Scheurle passed the business to his son and son-in-law, Franz F. Scheurle and Christoph Boden, and it was they that re-branded the firm's name to Quinn.
