Wiedamann / E.F.W. / E.W. Regensburg (Eugen Wiedamann)(Richard Wiedamann)
Brückstraße 4, Regensburg, Bavaria.
Zinngießermeister / Master pewterer
The Wiedamann pewter dynasty started with Friedrich Adam Wiedamann (b.1791) who founded the company in 1821, followed by Friedrich Eugen (b.1835),
Eugen Friedrich (b.1873-d.1954), Richard Eugen (b.1905) & Richard Eugen Ernst (b.14th May 1932 - d.6th January 2011).
Some art nouveau designers were mentioned in the 1915 catalogue:
Chr. Metzger for some household wares, together with Iwan Seligmann and Friedrich Adler, for modern style Judaica.
The workshop was closed in 1975, but the shop at Brückstraße 4, is still in business today, selling steins, pewterware and other souvenirs, all purchased from manufacturers.
Wiedamann's workshop manager Heinrich Rappl purchased the foundry equipment in 1975 and continued the pewter business under the name of Zinngießerei Rappl
This business is now located in Lappersdorf-Kaulhausen,
a local village, north-west of Regensburg.

Exported to Black Starr & Gorham of New York, United States, presumably between 1940 & 1962.
