Carl Stock can be regarded as the designer, as the use of hollyhocks (due to their name in German “Stockrosen”) as a part of the decoration is typical for him. The Heilbronn silver factory Bruckmann & Söhne was one of the most important manufacturers of silverware in Germany, such as silver and silver-plated cutlery and decorative silverware. Bruckmann & Söhne engaged some of the best and most famous artists of the time to design their objects. The company participated in the great world exhibitions in Paris and Barcelona, among others, and thus gained international recognition. Bruckmann & Söhne produced excellent works, especially with regard to Art Nouveau and Art Déco objects, and this claret jug is one of them.
