    Under Emperor Franz Joseph, the firm of Klinkosch had an importance comparable to that of Fabergé for Emperor Nicholas II. Under the direction of Josef Carl Klinkosch (1822-1888) and his two sons Isidor (1852-1914) and Arthur (1854-c.1900), the firm became the most important suppliers of gold and silverware to the Imperial Court of Austria.
