History of Carl Moller

Moller (Carl Ludwig Waldemur; 1831-1903) & Goldstein (Edward; 1829-1890) arrived in New Zealand together from Melbourne on the ship Genii in 1861.  Moller had originally emigrated to Victoria in 1854 and worked as a silversmith in a number of mining centres. 

Their first shop was established in 1862, in Rattray Street, Dunedin’s principle commercial precinct at the beginning of the gold rush.  Moller came from a long line of goldsmiths; his grandfather was a goldsmith and his father was a master goldsmith.  The pair were listed in Directory as ‘Working Goldsmiths & Jewellers’ by 1865.
