Wroclaw, Tobias Meyer and Gottlieb Benjamin Vogtmann, 1792
The imposing pair of silver tureens stands on the original presentoires. Both tureens have
preserved the original interior gilding. The pair was commissioned by Duke Friedrich August of Brunswick-Lüneburg-Oels in 1792 and made in Breslau by Tobias Meyer and Gottlieb Benjamin Vogtmann.
Duke Friedrich August married Friederike Sophie, Princess of Württemberg-Oels, in 1768 and was enfeoffed with the Lower Silesian Duchies of Oels and Bernstadt in 1792 after the death of his father-in-law.
A single additional tureen from the workshop has been preserved in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg.
