Johan van Oldenbarnevelt was executed for treason against the state in the early hours of 13 May 1619. The elderly statesman mounted the scaffold leaning on his stick. Since then, various walking sticks have been put forward as having once belonged to him. Among them is the one on display here, the provenance of which, however, is unknown.
