1871 - 1919
Frantz Hingelberg was educated as a silversmith at Jens Peter Soerensen in Aarhus. In 1897 he set up his own workshop and boutique. When he died in 1919 his widow Ninna Hingelberg ran the workshop which was continued in 1924 by their son Vilhelm Hingelberg (1899-1966) who had trained as a goldsmith and finished his apprenticeship in 1924.
Educated a goldsmith partly at the Hingelberg silversmithy and partly at Harald Ludvig Fischer in Copenhagen, young Hingelberg finished his apprenticeship in 1924. The Hingelberg silversmithy had great success thanks to their employee silversmith Svend Weihrauch. Weihrauch was the artistic leader of the silversmithy until 1956.
