Lot Essay

J J Priester (from 1660 - 1726, master 1688) is acknowledged as the most famous enameller in Augsburg. For a discussion on Priester's use of the engravings of Bernard Picard (1673-1733) as designs for his enamels see p. 141ff in Ulrike Weinhold: Emailmalerie an Augsberger Goldshmiedearbeiten 1650-1750.
