The Köller or Koeller family was long-established in the Solingen area and traced their ancestry back to the sword smith Johann Köller (1440-c.1518). F. Koeller & Cie was founded in 1855 by Franz Koeller and was listed in the commercial regissters as the manufacturer of 'cutlery, desk-sets and pens'; the company was also responsible for wholesaling the wares of some of the smaller Solingen firms.

Trademarks: 'Best Marke', 'Diamond', 'Elefant', 'Elefantenkopf', 'Elephant', 'Kismet', 'Khandia', 'Magna', 'Manda', 'Nadir', 'Okay', 'Schaukelpferd', 'Seeadler', 'Stasharp', 'Summore', 'Velvet'.
