Hermann Böhm

( 1890 circa )

Hermann Böhm was a very prolific and inventive Austrian goldsmith who, together with Hermann Ratzersdorfer, spread the taste for Revivalist goldsmith's work. He studied the precious items in the Imperial Collections and the Green Vaults in Dresden and employed local artisans to work on miniature paintings, enamels and hardstone to create objects of "Rothschild" fashion for an international clientele. He is recorded as working in Vienna from 1866 until 1922.
