Antique silver from our inventory
The company, which had been operating as "W. Lameyer & Sohn, manufacture, trading and storage of jewels, gold and silver work" since 1872, was founded by Wilhelm Lameyer senior (1808-1882). After completing his apprenticeship in Bremen, Stuttgart, Paris and Geneva, he had an excellent reputation, became a court goldsmith and made the Hanoverian crown insignia in 1843. In 1872 his son Carl Lameyer (1847-1923) entered the business, which in turn continued his son Wilhelm Lameyer junior (1889-1928) since 1918. During air strikes on Hanover, the business was destroyed on July 26, 1943, and in 1956 the company name was deleted.
Based on the design and design of the English "hotplates", the food warmer shown here was made in all parts in solid silver 925 / -. Due to the lack of an imperial stamp, production before 1888 can be assumed here. Custom-made products like this were (and still are) very time and cost consuming. All parts are marked with 925 and Lameyer.
Condition very good, functional.
