It is probably the guild dance of the Büttner. On the upper left is a man, clothed in two-colored sashes, stockings, and a colorful hat, holding a guild in his right hand, in the left a bow, twisted with twigs, and wrapped with a gold ribbon. This, in turn, holds such a bow of branches, which connects it with the next dancer. The dance with the arches thus runs in curves over at least 11 persons until the last man, who no longer holds a bow in his left and completes the bow part of the bow dancers.

1938 owned by Siegfried Lämmle.
In 1939, the German Theater Museum at the Munich Kunstversteigerungshaus Adolf Weinmüller bought the 7 hand drawings in the auction from 9th - 10th March 1939 (see annotated auction catalog 19, numbers 72 and 75, here no.
In 1948, the 7 objects are included in an application for reimbursement claims (see file in the State Archives Munich: WB Ia 2265 (3)).
A conditional settlement (AZ: I 2265 (3) // I WKV 56/55) concluded on 15 September 1955 has been paid out for reimbursement.
The subscription, however, could not be obtained at the time of the reparation. After the find and the annotated auction catalogues of the auction house Weinmüller in 2013, which were made available to the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich on permanent loan, the drawing became clearly identifiable.
In agreement with the heirs of Siegfried Lämmle, the drawing was restituted in August 2018. The drawing for the German Theatre Museum was repurchased in November 2018 with funds from the Freundeskreis Theatermuseasten.
