Catalogue Note

Zacharias Hohlhagen became a master goldsmith in Augsburg in 1627. He moved to Berlin where he was admitted to the goldsmiths’ guild there at the request of Elector Georg Wilhelm. He was subsequently appointed court goldsmith at about the same time as marrying Christina Weisse. Hohlhagen’s name appears on the list of master goldsmiths at Königsberg from 1657 to 1663, prior to moving to Nuremberg where he became a master in 1670 and a citizen a year later. He is recorded until 1682.
