Piet Heyn ewer, Francisco Enriquez, c. 1550 - c. 1600

silver, h 35cm × d 10cm More details

This silver ewer was part of the cargo of the Spanish Silver Fleet that Piet Heyn captured by order of the Dutch West India Company in 1628. ‘This ewer comes from the Silver Fleet that Sir Lieutenant-Admiral Piet Heyn captured on 6 September 1618’ was later engraved under the base. The year 1618 is a mistake: it should read 1628.

On display in room 2.9
