LEADING THE WAY

Simon Philip Wolf’s apprenticeship started early, barely out of his teens, his father, Philip Wolf IV guided him every step of the way, laying down a foundation of knowledge that had been passed to him by his father and that is invaluable to Simon who leads the company today with a clear vision and a desire to be the very best.

THE WOLF TEAM

OUR HISTORY

With each generation, we become an even more unique company. Strong traditions and ethics passed down from one generation to the next. Instilling a sense of pride at the achievements we all have made in this family led business, a business that has become a family.

 

1834 – THE BEGINNING

German silversmith Philipp Wolf I created the company in 1834 when he discovered that his silver pieces sold more when presented in beautiful boxes. As he began selling more boxes than silver, he refocused his designs creating sophisticated jewellery cases which not only looked good but protect meaningful treasures.

1895 – THE APPRENTICE

Son Philipp Wolf II had been working as his father’s apprentice. An enjoyable summer in southern Sweden convinced him to immigrate to Malmö. There he started his own workshop and soon earned the respect and recognition within the area for his craft. As time passed, his sons, Ernst and Philipp III, proudly continued the tradition of box making.

1930 – PHILLIPP WOLF III

Philipp Wolf III continued to expand the Swedish factory into its third generation of box making. After the Second World War, he embarked on long trips to America to sell his presentation boxes to newly emerging watch and jewellery markets. Progress was slow, but steady, the trips to America by sea taking up to a month each time.

1962 – PHILIP WOLF IV

Philip Wolf IV the first of three sons born to Philip III, immigrated to England to start a new factory. Over time, his highly automated factory employed over 300 people and was recognized as the largest manufacturer of jewelery boxes and display materials for all of Great Britain and much of Europe.

1988 – SIMON PHILIP WOLF V

With the economy and business flourishing in England, the time was right for the Wolf Family to assume the biggest challenge ever undertaken: tackling the USA and Canadian Markets. It was up to Simon Philip Wolf V, with guidance from his father Philip IV, to persevere through difficult challenges and achieve remarkable success.

TODAY

The Wolf Family business legacy proudly continues. The company not only crafts great jewellery boxes, but now creates a wide variety of fine quality gift items as well. Their patented technology and innovative product design in jewellery cases and watch rotators, has made the company what is today—the market leader.
