    The mark of Moritz Elimeyer is most often associated with good quality late 19th century silver. This includes candelabra based on a design by Christian Heinrich Ingermann, who supplied much of the silver for the court of Augustus III of Saxony (Christie's, London, 25 November 2008, lot 90). The firm was also responsible for a dressing-table mirror from the Royal House of Saxony (Christie's, Amsterdam, 19-20 September 2007, lot 331).
