Merkelbach & Wick Stein Catalog


The firm of Merkelbach & Wick was founded in 1872 in the town of Grenzhausen in the Westerwald by Friedrich Wilhelm Merkelbach II and Georg Peter Wick. They produced beer steins and other ceramic products under that name until 1921 when the heirs of the founders went their separate ways. At that point the firm was converted to a joint stock company operating under the name Wick-Werke AG, which remained in business until 1984.
