(b Biberbach, 26 Dec 1664; d Dresden, 6 March 1731). German goldsmith and jeweller. He was one of the most famous goldsmiths of his time, and almost all his works are in the Grünes Gewölbe, Dresden. He is first recorded in Dresden in 1692. His two brothers, the enameller Georg Friedrich Dinglinger (1666-1720) and the jeweller Georg Christoph Dinglinger (1668-1728), are documented as active there in 1693; they remained his closest collaborators, particularly Georg Friedrich.
