Karl Baumhauer founded the Baumhauer company in Germany we believe sometime around the 1850's or 1860s. The company grew and Karl crafted many different types of pieces generally in gold at Schwäb. Gemünd., Franzisskaner Gasse 18, Germany. The business did well growing in size and employing many others by 1870. The bulk of production took place between 1870 and 1890 and we are unsure what became of the company.
