TWO GERMAN CENTRE-PIECE AND TANKARD DRAWINGS
German school, anonymous, dated 1875
Design for a table fountain or presentation cup in the triumphal style of the "Grûnderzeit".
Pen and ink and black chalk, with scale, on paper.
The project was obviously intended to be an expensive gift to a merchent whose name remains secret, as the inscription on the cartouche is an anagramm.
40.5 x 28 cm
Swiss school, signed Bovey, circa 1870
Design of a covered "Humpen" in the style of the german 17th century.
Pen and ink, grey wash on paper.
