Daniel Sigmund Dockler the Younger

Not on view

Six years before being accepted as a master in the Nuremberg goldsmith’s guild, journeyman Sigmund Dockler created this refined beaker with its superbly embossed decoration. He inscribed it proudly with his initials as well as the date and place of manufacture. Dockler’s skill and talent were remarkable, even by the high standards of Nuremberg. His fame, and that of other Nuremberg masters, was the reason why so many journeymen traveled to the city.
