I am finally putting two ‘acquisitions’ from my stop in Frankfurt in place in the kitchen : a Thomas Rosenthal mug, and flatware from Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). The WMF company has been around since 1853, and this particular set is a classic. The no-nonsense, clean design in 18/10 stainless steel is called Stockholm, and has been made for 50 years. I actually had a set already, but when the salesperson said WMF is stopping manufacturing this design and it is therefore on sale, I jumped at it and got one more set.

I just googled WMF Stockholm and your blog popped up. Geislingen Germany was my grandmother’s hometown AND the home of WMF; her oldest brother, Georg, worked for WMF for 58 years as a pattern maker! I inherited all of my grandmother’s WMF (a lot of it) and my parents have many pieces too. My parents received the Stockholm stainless and silverplated as wedding gifts, 44 years ago. I need to contact WMF because they’re needing to replace the knives. I hope I can still get at this point.
