Walter Niemann; The House with the Golden Scales, op. 145

“As escort:
‘The House of the Golden Scales’ stands near the Dom in old Frankfurt and its magic fascination leads us straight back to the 17th century and shows us the dwelling house and business premises of a wealthy Dutch merchant. Such a house, indeed, may be seen in all old German towns, as symbolic of a time in which side by side with the bitter affliction of the thirty years’ war in Germany the highest mental and artistic productiveness flourished.” – Walter Niemann

The House with the Golden Scales was destroyed by Allied bombing on 22 March 1944.
