H. Seling, Die Kunst der Augsburger Goldschmiede 1529-1868, Munich, 1980, II, fig. 343, pp. 102-103.
This silver group is a second example of a known composition by Georg Jungmair in the Württembergisches Landesmuseum, Stuttgart. As Helmut Seling notes in his definitive work on Augsburg goldsmiths, the group is notable for being the only depiction of Christ on the Road to Calvary of this type, known to have come from Augsburg (Seling, loc. cit.).
No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 17.5% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
