Hermann Böhm was one of the best and most well-known representatives of the Neo-Renaissance goldsmiths art, creating precious objects made in 16th-century style from polychrome enamels, rock crystal, semi-precious stones, pearls and niello. He was inspired by the 16th century Kunstkammer objects in the Kaiser’s collections. In 1866, he founded the "Gold and Silverware Factory".

A characteristic feature of Böhm’s fine enamel works is the meticulous, detailed painting of the reverse sides of objects in delicate colours.
