Augsburg around 1665, Peter Winter

Silver, hallmarked, Augsburg around 1665-1669 and MZ by Peter Winter (1642-1702, master around 1651).

The two powerful scenes refer to the Metamorphoses of Ovid: one shows Venus mourning the dead Adonis with hunting dog. The other depicts the nymph Daphne fleeing from Apollo and transforming into a laurel tree.

Due to the quality of his work, the Augsburg-based artist enjoyed a high reputation. Other examples of his work have survived, including a silver crucifix with altar chandeliers in the Green Vault in Dresden, and a gilded goblet from the collection of Baron Karl von Rothschild, Frankfurt am Main.

Lit. Seling III: MZ No. 1537, BZ No. 100.

With frame 27 x 28 cm.
