Catalogue Note

The arms are replicating those of the von Glauburg family, probably for Johann von Glauburg (1503-1571) who was a Frankfurt councilor, diplomat and patron of the Reformation. He held the office of junior and senior mayor several times and is considered the most important representative of the Patrician family Glauburg.
