A continuous scene represents the major episodes in the Dutch attack on the English naval base at Chatham. Two days after the fort at Sheerness had been captured on 20 June 1667, Dutch forces sailed up the Medway and destroyed the English fleet. The States of Holland rewarded Admiral Michiel de Ruyter with this lavish goblet. The lid bears the arms of Holland.
