Saxon Electoral Serpentine Shell Reproduction Replica. Information about the original Lidded Bowl: The small bowl shown here is made of granite-free, translucent green coloured “noble serpentine”, a rare and particularly valuable type of Saxon serpentinite. It was made as a royal Christmas present in 1572. The coat of arms of the electorate of Saxony and of the Kingdom of Denmark engraved on the inside of the lid give reference to its owners, Elector August and his wife Anna, daughter of King Christian III of Denmark. The goldsmith Urban Schneeweiß was the head of a goldsmith family and the oldest member of Dresden’s goldsmith guild. He was one of the most important and busiest goldsmiths working for the electoral court.
