The portrait, one of a pair [see Jacob Sachß], depicts Anna Elisabeth Sachß (1622–85), the daughter of Johann Liptitz, cantor at the Toruń [Thorn] Academic Gymnasium and church of the Blessed Virgin; on 13 October 1648 she married the goldsmith, Jacob Sachß, depicted in the second portrait (see cat. no. 130). The couple had eight children. Their son, Johann Jacob (1652–93) took over his father’s workshop and was admitted to the municipality as a goldsmith in 1687.

The anachronistic garments and jewellery are worth noting, as they do not tally with the date 1682 visible on the inscription. The fur headcovering over the mob cap was more in fashion in the 1640s (Antwerp, southern Germany, Switzerland). The shape of the jewellery and bookbinding are reminiscent of patterns which were used even in the early 16th century. … [D. Juszczak, H.
