Pointed salver with Hannah and Samuel, Anonymous, Johannes Looff, Dirck van Delen, 1618

silver, d 30.8cm. More details

The engraving on this salver demonstrates the sheer virtuosity of the Zeeland seal engraver Johannes Looff. With incised grooves varying in depth and width, he rendered a painting by the Zeeland painter Dirk van Delen and prints by other contemporaries in silver. Thanks to the gilding, the refined play of light can still be admired in its full glory.
