    Dutch silver jug
    Martinus Logerath, Amsterdam, 1787
    1164 grams, 31 cm high

    This large, elegant jug with beaded borders has a partially fluted body, applied with laurel swags, headed by flower heads. The spreading circular foot with acanthus leaves is placed on a square base. The scroll handle is applied with a sequence of beads in seizes.

    Martinus Logerath, who worked as a silversmith from 1767-1814, specialized in large silverware. He was born in The Hague in 1733 as son of silversmith Johannes Logerath and Johanna Wilhelmina Buys. His brother Johannes Hermanus, also a silversmith, remained active in The Hague, whereas Martinus established his workshop in Amsterdam. From 1786 he had a workshop at Egelantiersgracht. It is known that he also worked for Willem Diemont, a retailer in Amsterdam. In 1814 he seized his activities.
    From his marriage with Sophia Harthoorn, with whom he lived in Laurierstraat in 1767, the year he registered as a master silversmith, his two sons are known. Eduard Martinus, also a silversmith, and Johannes Hermanus, a retailer. Unfortunately, Martinus survived his son, leaving him heirless.

    In the year 1787 Martinus Logerath manufactured a beautiful oval silver tureen, which is also part of the collection Jacob J. Roosjen. Furthermore, this collection comprises a sugar bowl by this same master, made in 1793.

  • A proposito di opere artista
    Martinus Logerath è nato a L'Aia nel 1733. Figlio dell'argentiere Johannes Logerath e di Johanna Wilhelmina Buys, si è formato come argentiere. A differenza di suo fratello Johannes Hermanus, scelse di non rimanere all'Aia, ma optò per Amsterdam, dove divenne membro della corporazione nel 1767. Con sua moglie Sophia Harthoorn visse a Lauriergracht. Dal 1786 aveva il suo laboratorio a Egelantiersgracht ed era anche fornitore per Diemont, un rivenditore di oggetti in argento ad Amsterdam. L'influenza di maestri francesi come François Thomas Germain è evidente in questa zuppiera. Fino al 1790 gli argentieri di Amsterdam si ispirarono ai disegni francesi. È noto che Diemont, tuttavia, importò argento inglese e di conseguenza anche i maestri di Amsterdam si ispirarono ai disegni inglesi.
