I'm the owner of Jarosinski & Vaugoin. I'm new in this forum, so please apologize any mistakes! Just wrote your comment on our hallmarks.
Obviously our history is quite confusing!
As Mrs Neuwirth quotes in her book (Lexikon Winer Gold-und Silberschmiede und Ihre Punzen 1867-1922, L-Z) on page 258 - Karl Vaugoin started business in 1847 (or in 1846 as on page 258 "Louis Vaugoin")- this is the date which we are referring our foundation today.
The firm moved several times (Laimgrubengasse, Myrthengasse, Zieglergasse) and merged with the company of "Jarosinski" in the early 20th century.
Every owner at that time used his specific master-hallmark (e.g. C.V: Carl Vaugoin) above all our company's mark (the goblet or chalice) existed already in the 19th century. Unfortunately we don't know when this mark was registered.
As far as I know in the period before the "Diana head" was marked (Alt Wien) we usually used just the initials. So I guess the chalice was invented around 1870-1875.
