He was probably born in Erfurt, Thuringia like his colleague and relative Simon Jacob Sang. Jacob Sang was a professional engraver and seller of glass. His engravings are far more delicate and meticulous than the work of most other Dutch wheel engravers. Eighty-seven glasses signed by him are known, nine of which are in the Rijksmuseum (see P.C. Ritsema van Eck, Glass in the Rijksmuseum, vol. II, Zwolle, 1995, p. 470 for a more extensive biography of Jacob Sang).
