Michael Müllner 1609-1629
Silver gilt, the conical cup with profiled lip rim stands on a narrow stand ring. The wall is decorated with chased diamond bosses which taper downwards to match the cup. On the underside of the cup is the Nuremberg city hallmark, the master's mark and the tremolo line.
Other works by Michael Müllner have survived in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, the Swedish National Museum in Stockholm and in the Oetker Collection. In the early 17th century, the workshop of Michael Müllner and Hans Petzold enjoyed a high reputation for the production of elaborate hump cups.
