Conrad Wirth (1838-1905) was the son of Johan Conrad Wirth II and Sara Hess, and thus the stepson of Isaak Walcher.
Trained by Walcher, the younger Wirth continued his studies in Vienna, London and Italy.
He returned to Zurich in 1868 to run the shop of his father and step-father, by that time primarily a retailer of jewelry, silver and luxury goods.
Wirth closed the shop around c.1879
