Nicolaus Christoph Robbe (great, great-grandfather of the current owner) founded the Flensburg silversmiths in his small workshop to produce silver cutlery and table accessories. In 1897, a very talented assistant was appointed: Robert Berking. He fell in love with Henriette Robbe, the daughter of his master, married her and took a 50 percent holding in the small company. By 1925 the small workshop be transformed into one of northern Germany’s most well-respected silversmiths.
The current owner, Oliver Berking began working for the family business in 1985. Robbe & Berking owes its significant consolidation of the global market to the motto of Oliver Berking’s great, great grandfather:
“Others may make it cheaper but none may be better.”
