Carl Leopold Heyer

Wiedner Schleifmühlgasse 2 & 4, Paniglgasse 19, Vienna, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now Austria)

Zinngießerei / Pewterer

Appointed K.u.K. Hofzinngießer or Imperial & Royal House Pewterer

Carl Leopold was born 3rd November 1831 in Komotau, Bohemia / now Chomutov, Czech Republic. He trained as a pewterer and qualified in 1849, at which point he started work for Friedrich Beitz, an established pewterer in Wiedner Hauptstraße 11, Vienna. By 1865 Friedrich Beitz is no longer listed. However Carl Leopold is now trading as his successor, from Wiedner Schleifmühlgasse 2. By 1868 he had opened a second branch at Freisingergasse 5, which had closed by 1874, but he moved next door to his first shop at Schleifmühlgasse 4. In 1881 he is awarded the K.u.K. Hoflieferant, and by 1884 this necessitates an additional branch at Paniglgasse 19, just around the corner from his original address at Wiedner Hauptstraße 11. By 1888 he opened yet another branch in Plankengasse 5. He died on the 23 May 1893, and his son Karl took over until 1904, after which time the company ceased trading.
