The firm of Hemmerle in Munich was founded in 1893 when the brothers Josef and Anton Hemmerle took over the jeweller Elchinger located at the Frauenplatz. They developed an excellent reputation for their reproductions of antique pieces, in particular for their facility with filigree work and enamel. They received many prizes at such prestigious events as the Paris World Fair of 1900. They eventually became purveyors to the Bavarian Court. In 1903, the firm moved to Maximilianstrasse. Today, they continue to produce high quality pieces under the leadership of Stefan Hemmerle. His design, strongly influenced by the Bauhaus, can be seen in his boutique in Munich, as well as at the art fairs of Basel, Maastricht and Palm Beach.
