Margarete Hammerschmidt portrait
Dear Hammerschmidt Family descendant,
Some time ago I’ve got quite ancient painting which can be Portrait of Margaretha Hammerschmidt dated 1621. Certainly I cannot be sure if it’s really true.
There is the following inscription at reverse side of the frame:
At Top: “Margaretha Hammerschmidt”
At Bottom: “St. Petersb 1621”
At Bottom of outer frame:”Margarete Hammerschmidt, Schwester der Frau Anna Hiedermann, Großmutter der D. Holger ermöglichte den Bau der Hauses, St. Petersburg”
I am going to sell it and if anybody is interested in please let me know.
