    Vilhelm Meyer (偉賀慕·馬易爾) was a prominent Danish merchant. He arrived in Shanghai in 1902 and was appointed counselor by the Danish government in 1909. He was a founder of Andersen, Meyer & Co. (慎昌洋行), a company specializing in importing building materials from Europe and later from the U.S.. After registering his company in New York, Anderson, Meyer & Co. became the sole agent of the General Electric Company in China. Both Meyer and his wife Kristen Bramsen were enraptured by Chinese art and culture, collecting Chinese furniture and other artworks.
