Our values

Since our founding in 1854, we at Wellner have strived to produce exceptional cutlery for the world’s most sophisticated tables. Today, we succeed above all by reflecting on our traditional corporate values, which have determined the way we think and act in our manufactory since its founding and will continue to do so in the future.


Over 160 years of experience and passion

The history of Wellner’s cutlery manufactory, founded in 1854, is characterized by inventiveness, ambition and the Saxon tradition of silver craftsmanship. From generation to generation, the knowledge and passion for this special craft are passed on and persist in each of our handcrafted masterpieces.


Precision and master craftsmanship

Carl August Wellner’s goal was to shape the culture of dining and to produce only the finest and highest quality silverware for this purpose. In this way, the Wellner brand has stood for the highest jeweler’s quality and perfect workmanship for over 160 years. Day after day, our master craftsmen – then as now – work with a trained eye, a lot of patience and the highest precision, creating unique masterpieces of silver piece by piece.


Attention to detail in each set of tableware

Flawless beauty as well as a mixture of timeless style, restrained elegance and extraordinary shapes, this is what makes the Wellner brand so convincing. Long before the term “designer cutlery” existed, such was manufactured at Wellner in Saxony and exported all over the world. As early as the turn of the century, the company commissioned outstanding artists and architects to design new cutlery shapes. Then as now, aesthetics and attention to detail play a decisive role in our company.


Values for this and further generations

Silver cutlery from Wellner tells its own story and embodies continuity in the pursuit of perfection and aesthetics. Due to their special workmanship, timeless design and lasting value, they are an investment in the future and are passed down from generation to generation. Many of our masterpieces have become true cult objects over time, such as the “No. 124” cutlery, one of which is owned by the Neue Sammlung in Munich.
