His first major order for holloware Henry van de Velde got on the occasion of the wedding of his donor, the grand duke Wilehlm Ernst of Saxony-Weimar and Princess Caroline of Reuß on the 30 th April 1903. The order, on behalf of the civil service, included 355 pieces in total.
The models were developed in close cooperation with the Weimar court jeweller Theodor Müller. Due to the size of the order, however, the execution of the service was handed over to the Bremer Silberwarenfabrik Koch & Bergfeld, but the work was probably only provided with the signets van de Veldes and Theodor Müllers (Föhl & Neumann, 2009, p.96 and p.98). The gift for the Grand Ducal Table aroused great enthusiasm among contemporaries and in the following years the range of van de Velde's silver designs grew steadily (ibid. p.100ff.).

Another mustard jug can be found in the collection of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg (Wiech, 1980).

The Mainz silverware factory Martin Mayer also executed designs of the artists from the Darmstädter Mathildenhöhe, such as for example for Patriz Huber (Ulmer, 1990, pp.117ff.) or Peter Behrens
