Footnotes

  • This belongs to a group of caskets of closely similar design and decoration, many of which bear the signature of either Michel or Conrad Mann. Nothing appears to be recorded about the latter, but the similarity of his signed work to that of Michel's suggests that they worked together. Michel was born in Augsburg and trained in Nuremberg, where he died circa 1630.
    For an example signed by Michel Mann see lot 1132, June 10 2010 Christie's, London.
    1 December 2011, Sotheby's, Paris, lot 300 signed example.
