Catalogue Note

The arms are those of Frederick William I, Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1675-1713), who reigned in the Mecklenburg-Schwerin area of the Duchy of Mecklenburg from 1692 to 1713, and his wife, Sophie Charlotte (1678-1749), daughter of Count Charles I of Hesse–Kassel, whom he married at Kassel in 1704.When the duke died without legitimate issue he was succeeded by his brother, Karl Leopold (1768-1747). The initials are for Sophie Charlotte Herzogin zu Mecklenburg.
Lorentz Johann Röper became a master goldsmith and a citizen of Rostock in 1717. He married Maria Dorothea Reddelin in Güstrow later that year.
