The story

A large coupe shaped as a mussel-shell on swirling waves from which flowers and reed sprout, cast with various sea divinities. A long-haired Naiad, with one arm lifted, is perched on one side of the shell.

Marked 'AS' Anton Ströbel for Eduard Wollenweber.

The firm of Eduard Wollenweber, celebrated goldsmiths in 19th century Munich, was conducted by two men of that name, father and son.The excellence of their work was recognized by a large group of important customers, chief among whom was King Ludwig II (1845-1886). A number of silver, silver-gilt and gilt bronze items supplied to him by Wollenweber were included in the exhibition, König Ludwig II. und die Kunst (Munich, June-October, 1968).
