In addition to the large travel services with extensive equipment, the Augsburg travel-set “Mundzeug” are of particular importance in the 18th century.
Following the trend in France in the 17th century, Augsburg became the center for travel and toilet services in the 18th century
The best Augsburg goldsmiths of their time worked on these services, which were usually created through the collaboration of several masters
The present travel-set consists of four pieces of cutlery (knife, fork, spoon and marrow spoon), a drinking bowl and egg cups embedded in a precisely fitting, period-appropriate leather case
Drinking bowl: Master Philipp Stenglin, born. 1667, master 1693, died 1744
Four-piece cutlery: Master Abraham III Warnberger, born 1670, Master: 1702, died 1753
Egg cup: Master: Johann Engelbrecht, born 1673, Master: 1704, died 1748
The fine gilding is well preserved on all parts.
The four-sided drinking bowl is decorated on the outside with fine bandwork, which is repeated on the egg cup and the handles of the cutlery
