Theodor Wolf was a senior official in the Ministry of Finance and lived from his retirement in 1925 until his death in 1941 at Rathausstraße 19/10 in Vienna's 1st district. He was unmarried and had no children. Because he was Jewish, he had to submit an asset declaration to the Vermögensverkehrsstelle (Property Transaction Office) on 14 July 1938. In May 1938 he gave a coin balance and two alcoholmeters to the Technisches Museum Wien. On 1 June 2007, the Art Restitution Advisory Board recommended the restitution of the objects to Wolf's heirs, who have not yet been identified, however.
