Lobmeyr’s second shop
Kärntner Straße 11, 1010 Vienna
The Lobmeyr company was at this address from 1825 to 1895, experiencing its first heyday during the age of great world exhibitions.
In 1825, just two years after the company was founded, Josef Lobmeyr moved to a larger shop in the “zum Prinzen Eugen” building on Weihburggasse, diagonally across from the previous store. In this corner building on Kärntner Strasse, the entrance to the shop was towards Weihburggasse. Just a few years after the move, the store expanded into the central space and, in 1844, the corner room towards Kärntner Strasse was added. Architect Moritz Wappler then redesigned the interior, adding an entrance on Kärntner Strasse. As Ludwig Lobmeyr noted in his autobiography: “From that point on, the shop was not only the first, but also the most attractive of its kind in Vienna.”
It was from this store that the Lobmeyr company truly became an international success story. The company took part in every world expo starting with the second one, which was held in London in 1862 and led to large orders from King of Bavaria Ludwig II and the royal courts of Serbia, Portugal, and Spain. Around this time, the overseas markets also opened up. As of the mid-nineteenth century, Lobmeyr was the only glassware purveyor to the Austrian imperial family. Large orders were also filled for various members of the imperial family including Crown Princes Rudolph and Franz Ferdinand, Archdukes Ferdinand Maximilian, Rainer, Ludwig Viktor, and Archduchesses Sophie and Marie-Valerie.
Josef and Ludwig Lobmeyr, sons of the founder, ran the business on Weihburggasse/Kärntner Strasse until the building was demolished in 1895, after which it was moved to its current location at Kärntner Strasse 26. Two long sales counters from this second shop have been preserved, along with the painted iron sign with the company logo on the outside of the entrance and the glass columns of the interior showcases. The latter are stored in the depot of the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts Vienna.
