Roemer with a Portrait of Prince Maurice, anonymous, c. 1618 - c. 1625

glass, h 17.5cm × d 8.5cm × w 127gr More details

In the calligraphic inscription to his portrait, Maurice is called ‘Prince of Orange’, the title he inherited after the death of his half-brother Phillip William in 1618. The clasped hands signify friendship, the parrot may refer to the eloquence of the person giving a toast with this glass, and the butterfly stands for the fleetingness of life.
