Roemer with the arms and the motto of Prince Maurice, anonymous, 1606

glass, h 11.1cm × d 9.0cm More details

The barren, chopped-down tree engraved on the glass stands for Maurice’s assassinated father, William of Orange. Sprouting from another stump are two twigs: Maurice and his younger brother, Frederick Henry. Maurice’s motto (Tandem fit surculus arbor) reads in translation: ‘In time, the (off)shoot becomes a tree.’ By 1606, when this glass was engraved, Maurice had already racked up many military successes.
