Guldsmeds Aktiebolaget

The company was founded in Stockholm in 1867, and for a long time had a wide production of objects in silver.

The artistic director from 1907 – 1942 was Jacob Ängman, who, like his successor, Sven Arne Gillgren, made significant efforts to promote art industrial design.

During the 1980s, ownership and structural changes led to the break-up of Gab’s management group and the business returning to the original as part of the GENSE Group.
