Theodor Olsen company was founded in 1868, in Bergen which was Norway’s foremost silversmithing city. At that time there were as many silversmiths in Bergen alone, as there were in the rest of the country. Olsen brought international expertise along when he arrived in this artisan-rich environment. He established his own sterling silversmith and store in 1868 and quickly became a leader in Bergen’s arts and crafts community.
