The firm of Wolfers Frères was established circa 1812 in Brussels by two brothers Edouard and Guillaume Wolfers, who moved to Belgium from Augsburg. In 1842, they were joined by the third brother, Louis Wolfers, who later passed the family business to his son Philippe. Alongside Odiot and Aucoc in Paris, Garrard in London, Fabergé in Russia, and Tiffany in America, Wolfers Frères were among the most distinguished silverware and jewellery manufacturers of the 19th–early 20th century. Their production ranged from silverware in various revivalist styles in the mid-19th century to Art Nouveau and Art Deco objects in the later period.
