WMF is the abbreviation for the Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik. WMF was founded in 1880 after the successful merger of two Württemberg factories. The factory in Geislingen belonged to Daniel Straub (Straub & Sohn) and the factory in Esslingen belonged to Alfred Ritter (A. Ritter & Co.). The first factory was economically more successful, while the second used a technologically more advanced method for galvanic silver plating. This method was first used by the German chemist Carl Haegele (1871) in Esslingen. Carl Haegele was the brother-in-law of the owner Alfred Ritter. After the departure of Daniel Straub in 1881, Carl Haegele became managing director of WMF. In the same year, the factory in Esslingen was dismantled and integrated into the foundry in Geislingen. In the following thirty years, WMF experienced a period of rapid expansion, that continued until the beginning of World War II in 1914.
