About 120 years ago, at the end of the 19th Century, the first member of the Deutsch family began to trade with antiques. Dealing with antiques was at the beginning grown out of an accidental transaction to offset pecuniary embarrassment, but soon became the chief occupation of the family, and till today each generation of the family is involved with enthusiasm, interest and fascination in this field. It's not only a subsistence of life, it's also the life occupation of the family.
After the First World War two stores could be opened in the inner historical city of Vienna, but they got lost at the beginning of the Second World War. After the great losses of the war, the first stores could be opened again in London in 1949 by Hugo Deutsch and in Vienna in 1954 by Friedrich Deutsch. Both branches still exist today.
第一次世界大战以后，我们在维也纳历史之都开了两家店铺，但不幸这两家店在第二次世界大战中阵亡。经历过大战的残酷摧残，由于战乱而被迫关闭的两家店铺先后分别由家族成员Hugo Deutsch和Friedrich Deutsch于1949年在英国伦敦和1954年在维也纳重新开张，时至今日这两家店铺仍在经营。
