Additional Info:

The Orfèvrerie (Goldsmith) Wiskemann
Otto-Léonard Wiskemann (1852–1909) set up in business in the heart of Brussels in 1872 and specialized in producing silver-plated white metal for the hotel and catering industry.

Alpacca Silver (Alpacca Versilbert)
The Alpacca alloy was developed in 1823 by the German chemist Dr. Ernst August Geitner (1783-1852). It was very similar in its appearance to silver, but significantly cheaper. Therefore, this new alloy was first called "Argentan". Later Argentan was used under the trade name of Alpacca (or Alpakka). The great advantage of the use of Alpacca alloy as the base metal for silver plating is that the appearance of the objects does not change significantly with the wearing away of the silver layer.
