Wilkens
details

Founded by the goldsmith Martin

Heinrich Wilkens in 1810, the company was originally a embossing institution for silver. Hollowware from silver was made for the Hanseatic town Bremen and for the kingdom of Hannover. From the middle of the 19th century Wilkens began with the production of silver cutleries. The patterns at that time were orientated at the time taste at that time. In the pattern books at that time we recognise beside the cutleries a rich choice by silver- and tableware. These products were delivered from the middle of the 19th century in the German cities.

In the second half of the 20th

century the production of cutleries dominates the company Wilkens & Sons. Besides the production of cutleries of silver the technical competence was used to produce also cutleries of other materials, as for example stainless steel or even titanium. The company Wilkens has succeeded in offering contemporary collections in high-quality workmanship together with famous designers. Beside Wolf Karnagel particularly the married couple Ulla and Martin Kaufmann and the designer Walter Storr are decisively for the modern line of the cutleries of Wilkens. Not only in sterling silver and in silver plated, but also in high-grade steel these cutleries fast became a success.

Particularly in the line of the

stainless steel cutleries these designers play an outstanding role. An unpretentious handiness is too own to the cutleries in combination with a reserved elegance. To all at the head of the exceptionally successful draught to the cutlery Palladio. This is available not only successfully as a cutlery from stainless steel, but also in silver and sterling silver. In addition, with the silver cutleries the cutleries of traditional style are dominating. The historical cutleries Venezia and the Eremitage are to be emphasised particularly here. The latter the limited jubilee cutlery from 2010 on the occasion of the 140-year-old existence of Wilkens, Venezia from 2011. Both models are replica which are produced on the old tools of the treasure of the company Wilkens & sons. Both patterns show an opulence otherwise rather atypical for the brand. But exactly so rise from the remaining program of the silver cutleries of Wilkens.

The company Wilkens is able to

access on a big treasure of tools. Many models which were sold during former years are thereby still available. These cutleries are to be found in the category 'Collectors edition'. In the range of silver cutleries we find the typical models like Chippendale, Augsburger Faden and Spaten, however, besides also one of the most popular silver cutleries of Wilkens: the Schwedisch Faden (Swedish thread). This model is in his workmanship outstanding under the traditional cutleries of Wilkens: This cutlery unites, nevertheless, everything what is the hallmark of Wilkens cutleries: Handiness and a pleasant haptics, a big variety in individual parts and a reserved elegance. With these qualities the model Schwedisch Faden has become the most prominent cutlery model of Wilkens. This cutlery is available in sterling silver as well as a high-quality cutlery in silver edition. The hollowware of Wilkens encloses a large range of plates and trays, as well as an assortment of gobelets. Particularly the gobelets are suited very well as an object which can be provided with an engraving. How, by the way, all products can be delivered by Wilkens with an engraving.

Made, by the way, still where

the company since the 19th century his is seated: in Bremen. - And the production of silver is that what controls Wilkens since now more than 200 years best of all.
