Werner & Mieth, zugeschrieben - Pair of three-light table candlesticks Fire-gilded bronze/brass, discolored cut glass, white marble. Spirally twisted tube with dense prismatic hanging, crowned by a closed bud. H approx. 73 cm. Berlin, Werner & Mieth, attributed to the 1800s to 1810s. The two Berliners Christian Gottlieb Werner (ca. 1751 - 1831) and Gottfried Mieth (ca. 1761 - ca. 1834) began their careers at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory as modelers and embossers. In 1791, they set up their own business with the idea of a "bronze and art objects factory" and founded a partnership together with the master yellow caster Friedrich Luckau Jr. The workshop was located in Leipziger Straße; in 1801 they moved into a building in Jägerstraße. The special quality of the products was aimed at an international, aristocratic and wealthy clientele. The company was organized according to the English model of division of labour, with cost-saving pre-production of individual parts. The buying public could order from the catalogs or order an individual piece. Werner & Mieth's fame was due to the custom-made products for the Prussian court, which were at the beginning of their career. Wilhelmine von Lichtenau, the mistress of King Frederick William II, had already ordered chandeliers and bronze objects in the spring of 1793 and introduced the two entrepreneurs to the court. This was followed by commissions for the royal palaces Unter den Linden and the Winter Chambers in Charlottenburg Palace. Werner & Mieth were later able to gain Hans Christian Genelli (1763 - 1823) and Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781 - 1841) as designers, eventually maintaining warehouses in Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig, Breslau and London and also delivering to St. Petersburg. Research into Werner & Mieth was initiated by Frank C. Möller, who is working on a publication on the subject. Literature Cf. Klappenbach, Kronleuchter des 17. bis 20.
