JAROSINSKI & VAUGOIN

Laimgrubengasse, Myrthengasse 18, later, Zieglergasse 24, Wien

Established in 1847 by Carl Vaugoin, In 1905, the company, now in the hands of Jean Vaugoin, merged with Ladislaus Jarosinski's business, to form Jarosinski & Vaugoin.

From 1908 there was cooperation between Heinrich Ecker's company and Jarosinski & Vaugoin in the production of flatware. In 1910 Jarosinski & Vaugoin were awarded the Imperial Warrant, and in 1920 collaborated with Josef Hoffmann and the Wiener Werkstätte. 1928 saw the company become suppliers to the Romanian royal household. In 1959 Jarosinski & Vaugoin were appointed the official suppliers of flatware and cutlery to the Austrian Embassies around the world.

Jarosinski & Vaugoin are still in business today: Image and still located at Zieglergasse 24, and still in the hands of the Vaugoin family.

From 1905 the mark of Jarosinski & Vaugoin was 'J·V'

From the mark of Jarosinski & Vaugoin was a Chalice

Hi,

I'm the owner of Jarosinski & Vaugoin. I'm new in this forum, so please apologize any mistakes! Just wrote your comment on our hallmarks.

Obviously our history is quite confusing!

As Mrs Neuwirth quotes in her book (Lexikon Winer Gold-und Silberschmiede und Ihre Punzen 1867-1922, L-Z) on page 258 - Karl Vaugoin started business in 1847 (or in 1846 as on page 258 "Louis Vaugoin")- this is the date which we are referring our foundation today.

The firm moved several times (Laimgrubengasse, Myrthengasse, Zieglergasse) and merged with the company of "Jarosinski" in the early 20th century.

Every owner at that time used his specific master-hallmark (e.g. C.V: Carl Vaugoin) above all our company's mark (the goblet or chalice) existed already in the 19th century. Unfortunately we don't know when this mark was registered.

As far as I know in the period before the "Diana head" was marked (Alt Wien) we usually used just the initials. So I guess the chalice was invented around 1870-1875.

Best regards,
Jean-Paul
