In 1656 Quellinus was paid for making a model of a railing with scrolled foliage to be cast in bronze. This railing may well be the end result. It was meant for the Wisselbank (Exchange Bank), which was responsible for turning Amsterdam into the financial heart of the world in the 17th century. The bank was located on the ground floor of the Town Hall.
