Servants would go around with ewers and basins at the beginning and end of formal dinners. Water was poured from the ewer over the hands of the distinguished guests, and the dirty water was caught in the basin. This ewer and basin were the property of Vlissingen. The city’s coat of arms – a crowned bottle – and its motto are engraved in the centre of the basin.
