This history of the Vienna Silver Chamber goes back to the fifteenth century. The office of Silver Chamberlain is first documented at the Vienna court of Emperors Frederick III and Maximilian I. The holder of this office was responsible for the table silver, table linen and the setting of the imperial table.
Over the course of time the Silver Chamber gained in importance. Its various responsibilities were divided between the Court Kitchen, the Court Confectionery, the Court Linen Room, the Court Cellars, the Court Silver and Table Room, the Court Depot of Victuals, the Court Firewood and Coal Depot and the Court Light Room, that is, the offices that regulated the imperial household.
