Cutlery / Vienna Classics
based on cutlery patterns
from the 18th century
The Hofburg pattern was initially produced in 1881 for the Prague residence of Crown Prince Rudolf and his young wife Stephanie of Belgium. In 1902 Stephanie commissioned a new set from Alexander Sturm for the wedding of her daughter, Archduchess Elisabeth. Hofburg has been the official state cutlery of the Czech Republic since 1918.
Today it is used throughout the world in embassies of the Republic of Austria.
