According to my research, Lazarus Posen was a silversmith that was started in 1869 near the border of Germany and Poland. The firm grew to be one of the largest suppliers of the finest Silver in Germany. It was owned by a Jewish family andreceiveda royal warrant in 1903. In 1938 on the Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass), the Nazis forcefully closed and looted the facility and Posen family members perished.


I have not been able to identify the 3 circle stamp and have spent many hours scouring the web.

These pieces are beautiful in awesome condition

and have very intriguing history!

Lazarus Posen Witwe (Lazarus Posen’s widow)
Berlin & Frankfurt/Main 20th century
ref: Bröhan/Metallkunst der Moderne vol. VI Marke Seite 108, No.87, Scheffler Goldschmiede Hessens No.631
The firm was founded in Frankfurt on the Main in 1869 by Brendina Wetzlar, the widow of Lazarus Jacob Posen, a silversmith and retailer of Polish descent. Under the widow Posen’s stewardship, the firm became the largest supplier of Judaica in the late 19th century. Her son Jacob L. Posen joined the firm by 1880, and by 1900, the company’s large staff of chasers and engravers were producing some of the finest silver in the country. They received a royal warrant in 1903. In the 20th century the firm was under the direction of Brendina’s grandsons Jakob, Hermann and Moritz Posen. In 1938 the company was forcefully closed and looted on Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass - Novemberpogrome: courtesy information Jacob Frank)
