Piet Heyn ewer, Francisco Enriquez, 1550 - 1600

silver, h 35cm × d 10cm. More details

According to the inscription in Dutch under the foot of this silver ewer, it ‘comes from the [Spanish] Silver Fleet that Sir Lieutenant-Admiral Piet Heyn captured on 6 September 1618’. These details were engraved later, and a mistake was made over the date. The year 1618 is incorrect: it should read 1628.
