    A goblet signed and dated 1729 by the Thuringian glass engraver Andreas Friedrich Sang was illustrated by Gustav Pazaurek, 'Die Glasschneiderfamilie Sang', Kunstwanderer (July/August 1930). In the late 1740s he is thought to have been working in Amsterdam, residing with Jacob Sang, to whom he was presumably related.
