Christophe Reisser's Sohne
The Reisser printing company was founded in 1873 immediately after the Vienna World Exhibition by Christoph Reisser (1836–1892), who together with his business partner Max Werthner named it “Chr. Reisser & M. Werthner”. After Reisser's death, the company was run by his widow Isabella Bauer, along with Werthner and Reisser's son Victor (1867–1944). In 1900 Max Werthner left the company and the second son Christoph Reisser took his place as a partner. With the departure of Werthner, the company was renamed Christoph Reisser's Sohne in 1900.
