A.& B. Pruckner

Bartholomäus Pruckner / Pruckner's Nachfolger
Promenadeplatz 3, Munich. Bavaria.
Zinngießermeister / Master Pewterer
Founded in 1827 by Bartholomäus Pruckner. Nothing is currently known about Bartholomäus other than by 1874 the company is being run by his widow, Magdalena and a Zinngießer Robert (presumably his son). Also in that year there is listed a Max, formerly a Zinngießermeister, listed at Theresienstraße 73, which might have been Bartholomäus's retired brother. The company was purchased by Ludwig Mory in 1889 and renamed L. Mory - Pruckners Nachfolger.
