his workshop worked on the table decoration for the wedding of crown prince Maximilian of Bavaria, the so-called "Schwanenaufsatz". This three-part table top resides in the Schwanensaal of the castle Hohenschwangau. He also worked for many European aristocrats.
He also worked for many European aristocrats. Many of his treasures made on the order of the respective nobility are still unknown today. This noble 5-piece serving cutlery with salt and pepper containers is also difficult to assign. This was probably made for a Northern European nobility.
