Wiskemann is the most exclusive Belgian manufacturer of silver-plated objects. Otto-Leonard Wiskemann descended from a noble German family of goldsmiths and jewellers. His career started with an internship at Christofle. After this internship he was able to improve Christofle's process even further, and he settled in Brussels in 1872. The company was later carried on by Otto and Albin Wiskemann, and by Bruno Wiskemann after that. It was during this period that the Wolfers family (known from Philippe Wolfers and the Wolfers Frères) acquired a majority shareholding of the company. Later, the companies of the Delheid family were also added to this group. This is a piece of Belgian history of excellent quality that can be compared with Christofle, Robbe & Berking, Ercuis, Puiforcat, Wilkens etc.
