Cabinet of Amalia von Solms, Willem de Rots, c. 1652 - c. 1657

oak (wood), h 65cm × w 104cm × d 40cm. More details

This cabinet was made for Amalia von Solms, widow of Stadtholder Prince Frederick Henry. The marquetry on the doors had a political significance: it alludes to a glorious future for the grandson of Amalia and Frederick Henry, Prince William III (born in 1650). Because William’s father had died shortly before his birth, the fate of the House of Orange depended on the young prince.
