The identity of this remarkable engraver, who was active in the 19th century, embellishing Swedish and Danish silver of the 18th century and earlier, is apparently unidentified.

See: Gudmund Boesen and Christian a Boje, Old Danish Silver, Copenhagen 1949, pl.380, ​for a similar plate, plain except for the Royal Danish Coat of Arms, which was part of the service, sold at auction in 1881, and made in 1829 by Nicolai Christensen and others, for Princess Caroline of Denmark, daughter of King Frederick VI.
