Ewer and basin, Johannes Grill, 1649

silver (metal), h 34.5cm × w 19.8cm × d 14.5cm × w 1018gr. More details

Scenes chased on silver were an Amsterdam speciality. This ewer and basin demonstrate Johannes Grill’s mastery in combining fanciful motifs with Classical figures. His work was also admired outside of the Netherlands: this ensemble, for instance, was made for Edward Sebright, an English nobleman. These showpieces were used to wash one’s hands before and after a meal.

On display in room 0.7-Z2.01
