Ed Trinkkeller Biography
Ed Trinkkeller (1872-1945) learned his ornamental iron work artistry beginning in his native Germany. He emigrated to the US in 1890 and established his first shop in Los Angeles in 1896. He began an association with architect Julia Morgan in 1921 when she saw his work in the LA Examiner Building. Impressed, she contracted him for the ornamental ironwork needed at San Simeon (Hearst Castle), then under construction. Trinkkeller worked on the Hearst iron work from 1921 to 1934, making all of it at his Los Angeles shop and shipping it by train and truck to San Simeon. In addition to Hearst, he did work for the Doheny family, Harold Lloyd, the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Will Rogers, the John Singleton Estate, the Santa Barbara club, and many others.
