All and Sundry Stickers – Traces of the “Kunst und Antiquitäten GmbH” on objects in the Deutsches Historisches Museum

On the occasion of the International Day of Provenance Research, provenance researcher Christopher Jütte provides insight into the work of deciphering sticker codes in the attempt to find out where these objects came from.
