Some designs by Alfred Sachs and Guido Heigl, later of the Wiener Werkstätten, executed by Berndorfer Metallwaaren-Fabrik Arthur Krupp in 1912:

These designs are likely the result of a competition organised by Krupp for the students of the Imperial Arts and Crafts School at Vienna, of which Alfred Sachs and Guido Heigl, along with Philip Hausler, were noted as the winners:

......Another instance of this is the Berndorfer Metallwarenfabrik. The proprietor of this establishment, Herr Krupp, offered prizes for the best designs for a table service to be competed for by students of the Imperial Arts and Crafts School, stipulating that three points should be kept in view, namely, beauty of design, practicability, and the possibility of the designs being carried out by first-class workmen at a moderate price. These prizes were carried off by Alfred Sachs, Guido Heigl, and Philip Hausler. All three showed fine feeling in their design, in construction, and in the general unity of effect.

The success of white alloys in contradistinction to silver-plated wares is already very pronounced, and the new showrooms and offices of the " Berndorf Metal Works," at the corner of Regent Street, and Frederick Street, Birmingham, are an outcome of the same ; the building is large and important in appearance and is evidently designed for the business; the firm are manufacturers of a great variety of metal goods, rolled metal, wire and tubing, goods in white alloy and nickel, and should be able to command a very extensive trade. The manager is Mr. B. S. Spittle.

THE USE OF PURE NICKEL FOR COINAGE

Various metals and alloys have been suggested or used for the manufacture of coins of small denominations, but recently pure nickel has become a coinage material. From a statement recently made in an Austrian paper it would appear that while nickel has been used to a limited extent for coins, its employment in this direction is increasing. The following taken from the Oest. Zeits. fur Berg und Huttenwesen explains the situation:

“The increased cheapness of nickel, owing to the large output of the Canadian mines, is leading to a more extended use of this metal. Only lately it was mentioned that the French Government proposed to use 400 tons in nickel coinage. Austria, it seems, is about to follow her example.

“At a recent meeting of the Austro-Hungarian Parliament, says Oberbergrath Ernst, it was proposed to issue 10 and 20 farthing pieces of pure nickel and I and 2 farthing pieces of bronze. After mentioning several alloys that have been tried and found wanting, among others the “packfong,” containing 6 per cent. of silver coined in Switzerland in 1860, he instances an alloy of 25 per cent. nickel and 75 per cent. copper as one which experiments have proved, with one exception, to be suitable for small coin. This alloy is cheap, durable and hard to counterfeit. Its hardness, compared with that of copper, is 3 to 2. It can only be coined with powerful and well constructed machinery, and the impression is sharp and clear. The one fault to be found with it is that while bright when new, it soon becomes dull and gives the offensive odor of copper. With the exception of Germany, all the large countries have ceased to coin this alloy.

“Nickel is especially suitable for small coins on account of its cheapness, durability, sharpness of impression, and, most important of all, its lasting brightness; but until a process for manufacturing pure nickel was devised at the Berndorfer Metallfabrik the metal could not be coined on account of its brittleness. In I880-I88I Switzerland commenced the coinage of 20 rappen pieces of pure nickel, the dies being furnished by Krupp, of Berndorf. Krupp also furnished the plates for Mexico and Servia for their copper-nickel coins. While the former coinage of copper-nickel in Switzerland, Mexico and Servia took but 200,000 kilos (440,000 pounds), the proposed coinage of Austria will require not less than 1,050,000 kilos of pure nickel (2,310,000 pounds), and that of Hungary 450,000 kilos (990.000 pounds).”

[Apparently, the author of this article, from his remark about all the large countries having ceased to coin cupronickel. does not consider our great and glorious country within the category of even Switzerland. Our Government is still coining the five-cent pieces from cupro-nickel (copper 75 per cent. and nickel 25 per cent).

Krupp, of whom he speaks as the manufacturer of pure nickel, is not the late Herr Krupp of steel fame, but of Bernsdorf, a suburb of Vienna, Austria. We are informed. however, that he is a relative of the steel manufacturer. The Bernsdorf works is one of the largest brass and copper works in Europe.—EDITOR.
