Star of David with the Letter C

Postby maweiss » Fri Jun 05, 2020 11:06 pm

Hello, I looked through the German forums but couldn't find this maker. My mother-in-law's mom came from Berlin to Brazil with this set and I am trying to help her trace the history of it. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Hi,
It is actually letter G in Star of David for Jakob Grimminger who worked in Schwabisch Gmund. The firm was founded in 1893 and by the 1930 had a fine reputation as producer of modern silver.

His mark is listed here:

If you search for Jakob Grimminger, add silversmith, silver or Silber because there was another Jakob Grimminger who was a standard-bearer of the Blutfahne.
Regards
