Description

In the 17th century, beakers engraved with trading vessels were mainly made in VOC cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Delft, Hoorn, Enkhuizen and Middelburg. However, on this particular beaker, manufactured in Dordrecht, we also see rather important 17th century trading vessels. Many people highly involved in the VOC, such as Mattheus van den Broucke, Cornelis de Witt and Anthonis Repelaer lived in Dordrecht. These prominent people had much interest in purchasing these kinds of silver beakers, which would emphasize their eminent role in this trading company. The first owner of this beaker most certainly had a strong connection with the VOC.
