The Stockhammer family who originated from Ried (Innkreiss) consisted of the father Andreas and his three sons, Adolf, Karl and Otto. They were all listed as merchants. It would appear that whilst Karl stayed in Ried with his father, Adolf and Otto moved to Salzburg and opened their business in Vierthalerstraße 3, in 1898. Andreas died in April 1919. Meanwhile on March 1st of the same year Adolf and Otto separated their partnership into two separate entities. Adolf took over production of the arts and crafts workshop, which included the glass and porcelain decoration and the photography for producing transfers, based in Vierthalerstraße 3, together with detail work based in Siegmund Haffnergasse 6. Otto in turn was responsible for sales and the shop area at Vierthalerstraße 3, until his death in November 1934. The company was last listed with Adolf having three employees and two round ovens for curing glazes at the above address, according to the contemporaneous publication: Adressbuch der Keram-Industrie of 1937. Adolf had already died in December 1936. They advertised both day to day and luxury goods for kitchen and household in hotels, cafés, guesthouses and private homes, also photographically decorated porcelain, with workshops in Vierthalerstraße 3, offices in Franz-Josefstraße 26, and shop & showrooms at Sigmund-Haffnergasse 6. Owners still listed as Adolf and Otto Stockhammer. With Adolph dying in 1936, presumably with his business still at Vierthalerstraße 3, It must be assumed that the new owner, Fritz Gruber must have been working for Adolf Stockhammer from a separate address ie. Auerspergstraße 55, which was only a three minute walk.
