Siemens & Halske AG (or Siemens-Halske) was a German electrical engineering company that later became part of Siemens. Founded in 1847 as Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Siemens & Halske by Werner von Siemens and Johann Georg Halske. The company, located in Berlin-Kreuzberg, specialised in manufacturing electrical telegraphs according to Charles Wheatstone's patent of 1837. In 1848, the company constructed one of the first European telegraph lines from Berlin to Frankfurt am Main. Siemens & Halske was not alone in the realm of electrical engineering. In 1887, Emil Rathenau had established Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft (AEG), which became a long-time rival.

In 1881, Siemens & Halske built the Gross-Lichterfelde Tramway, the world's first electric streetcar line, in the southwestern Lichterfelde suburb of Berlin, followed by the Mödling and Hinterbrühl Tram near Vienna, the first electrical interurban tram in Austria-Hungary. 1882 saw the opening of the experimental "Elektromote" track, an early trolleybus concept in the Berlin suburb of Halensee. The rising popularity of telegraphs & electrical tramways, as well as in generators and electric motors, ensured steady growth for Siemens & Halske.

Werner von Siemens retired in 1890, while Johann Georg Halske had already left the company in 1867. Werner von Siemens' brother Karl Heinrich, together with Werner's sons Arnold and Georg Wilhelm, grew the firm and erected new Siemens & Halske premises along the banks of the western Spree river, in the Berlin suburb of Charlottenburg, in 1897. The firm's vast new site continued to grow, and from 1899 onwards it was known as Siemensstadt.

Rag & Bone Bros are 2 brothers who started out as collectors and scrappers of all sorts of salvaged metal. We began hoarding all the quality and cool items we salvaged, until we came to a point where we just had to sell them and embarked on the business of selling antiques, vintage and anything we thought was quality and cool.  We now travel all over the UK hunting everywhere we can for those amazing quality items we like to call treasure.

We also travel to Europe (France, Belgium, Holland and especially Germany...) and now, slowly into Eastern Europe, where we have a group of treasure hunters we work with who search tirelessly for those quality items.  We also specialise in using everything we find.  We will hunt for old bits of wood and rusty bits of metal, so when we refurbish anything, it will always be with salvaged, aged and original pieces.  Nothing is wasted.
