In this field, you will find references to names of groups or to the artists that made/make up groups. You may also come across references to other artists if there was/is question of collaboration without a joint name. This is the case, for instance, with artists who rendered parts of works by other artists (such as with P.P Rubens and J. Brueghel I).
In 1856 G.F.W. Bauer established the firm S. and J. van Lier en Bauer ( 1975 and 1960); in 1862 the company was named N.V. Utrechtsche Fabriek van Zilverwerken. In 1868 Bauer was dismissed and C.J. Begeer took over the management of 'Utrechtsche Fabriek van Zilverwerken van C.J. Begeer', also known as Fa. C.J. Begeer, until his death in 1879. That same year his brother Anthonie became an associate in the firm and he was able to expand the company. Anthonie's stepson Cornelis L.J. Begeer (son of C.J. Begeer) who worked as a chef in the company from 1888 on, started his own company in 1903. Anthonie's sons Carel J.A. Begeer (1883-1956) and Anton Begeer (1885-1957) became partners in 1908 and continued the company after their fathers death in 1910. In 1919 the firm merged with J.M. van Kempen & Zonen and Jac. Vos & Co. (Begeer 1975, p. 13); the new name was Koninklijke Nederlandsche Edelmetaal Bedrijven Van Kempen, Begeer & Vos N.V.
