Josef Carl Klinkosch (1822-1888) was one of the best Viennese silversmiths who worked for the Emperor Franz Josef. Important Austrian artists such as Otto Wagner or Otto Prutscher made designs for the prolific Klinkosch Company.

In 1831 his father Carl Klinkosch formed a partnership with Stephan Mayerhofer and the partnership traded as Mayerhofer & Klinkosch. The company expanded quickly and within a few years employed several hundred workers. In 1869/1870 he ended his partnership with Stephan Mayerhofer and the company was renamed 'J.C. Klinkosch'. The company participated in the World Exhibition in Vienna in 1873 and the World Exhibtion in Paris in 1878 and won numerous silver and gold medals.

From 1855 the Klinkosch Company held the Imperial Warrant to the Court of Franz Josef. Klinkosch was a member of the Vienna Municipal Council from 1861 to 1862 and his customers were largely drawn from the upper middle class and the nobility.

Josef Carl Klinkosch was knighted in 1879 and could then call himself Joseph Carl Ritter von Klinkosch. In 1884 he retired from business, the company passed to his two sons, Arthur (1884-1899) and Isidor (1884-1914). In 1918, the company was acquired by Arthur Krupp and was incorporated under the name 'JC Klinkosch AG'.
