Catalogue Note

Ignatius Caspar Bertholt (1719-94, master 1750) specialized in ecclesiastical items such as chalices, monstrances and altar fittings, particularly for churches in Munich and Augsburg. He created appliques for an altar in silver-gilt, 1769-71, in the Diözesanmusueum, Bamberg. A large silver-gilt monstrance by Bertholt is preserved in the Church of the Madeleine, Strasbourg, and was included in the exhibition Les trésors des églises de France, Paris 1965, no. 874, and illustrated in Jean Taralon, Les Trésors des Eglises de France, Paris: Hachette, 1966 p. 127, 274-75.
