Christoph Jamnitzer (11 May 1563 in Nuremberg - December 22, 1618) was a Nuremberg goldsmith of the late Renaissance. He made metal globes and is known for the Moor's Head drinking vessel in head shape. He is perhaps best-known as the author of the Neuw Grottessken Buch (1610).


Christoph Jamnitzer is the grandson of the Nuremberg goldsmith Wenzel Jamnitzer (1507/08-1585).
