Lot Essay

Jonas Gutsche (1624-c.1671) was German born and is recorded as a master of the silversmiths' guild in The Hague in 1657. A ewer of 1670 from the Hague, also attributed to Gutsche, is in the Rijksmuseum (no. BK-1963-62-B) and was exhibited Utrecht, July - September 1936, no. 157. Gutsche was also an accomplished sculptor, as demonstrated by the figural stem of the cup he made in 1670 for St. Luke's Guild of the Hague (J.W. Frederiks, Dutch Silver, Embossed Ecclesiastical and Secular Plates from the Renaissance to the End of the 18th Century, The Hague, 1961, vol. 4, p. 50, no. 100, pl. 114).
