Catalogue Note

An identical rendering of the anointing including the overlapping leaf rim, can be found on a lead plaquette ascribed to Hans Jamnitzer, (son of Wenzel) of circa 1580 (see Weber). The scene is rendered with minor differences in silver, part of a tazza dated 1596 and hallmarked in the town of Gouda, in the Dutch Republic (see Fredericks). Both representations have been influenced by a print of circa 1550, by Hieronymus Cock after Maarten van Heenskerck (British Museum ref. 1949.0709.65). The heavy weight of the tazza and shape of the foot, suggest a Spanish or Spanish Netherlands origin for the piece
