The inscription, which translates as ‘When wine enters, reason departs’, warns of the consequences of over indulgence. Van Heemskerk kept this bottle in his own possession, together with a large portion of his work. His glass collection remained in the family well into the 18th century and was auctioned in Leiden in 1771.
