silver (metal), h 3cm × d 6.8cm × w 98gr. More details

The custom of presenting a medallion to commemorate a wedding was widespread in the 17th century. Such medallions were sometimes kept in a specially made box. The lid of this box is embellished with marriage symbolism. Simple engraving, as found here, was probably not done by a specialist, but by the silversmith himself.

On display in room 0.7-Z4.04
