Intro
Founded in 1932 the aims are: the promotion of contemporary design trends in jewelry, hollow- and flatware, the preservation of traditional gold- and silversmith techniques through competitions, the support and encouragement of young gold- and silversmiths and the organization and maintenance of an archive on art jewelry, hollow- and flatware design.
Our Objectives: 
· Promotion of contemporary design trends in jewelry, hollow- and flatware, without restriction as to material or technique, through competitions and exhibitions as well as publishing activities and publicity specifically for these events.
· Preservation of traditional gold- and silversmith techniques through competitions with the theme of new design concepts utilizing these techniques (granulation, filigree, enamel, etc.).
· Support and encouragement of young gold- and silversmiths through specific information on training and further education, promotional prizes, and advice on the organization of exhibitions.
· Organization and maintenance of an archive on art jewelry, hollow- and flatware design of the 20th and 21st centuries. 


History:
The Association for Goldsmiths' Art was founded in 1932, by the goldsmith and jeweler Ferdinand Richard Wilm in cooperation with recognized artists such as Emil Lettré, Albert Reimann, and Peter Behrens in the Altes Museum in Berlin.
After World War II, the Association was moved to Hamburg. The Association, which had been focused mainly on Germany, became an international institution on a public-service basis, and has been located in the German Goldsmiths' House, Hanau, since 1985.
To date, about 150 exhibitions and more than 100 national and international competitions have been accomplished.

Collections:
Collection Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus Hanau
Collection Ebbe Weiß-Weingart
Collection Burgel
