The engraved and embossed scenes on the ewer and basin portray the victories of the Dutch in their battle with Spain. The earliest success, the Relief of Alkmaar, dates from 1573, and the last one is the naval Battle of Gibraltar in 1607. The basin’s dazzling centrepiece is Prince Maurice’s triumph at the Battle of Nieuwpoort in 1600.
