Spiegel was born in 1876 in Sopron, Hungary, and apprenticed to Paul Pilat in Budapest. He later worked for W.J. Schunda from 1896-1898, and then for R. Laumann until 1900, and finally established his own business in Budapest in 1903, which he maintained until his death in 1956. The shop was continued by his assistant J. Csapkovits. His output was prolific, with many instruments exported to the U.S.A., branded internally ‘Spiegel János / Budapest’.
