The Marriage Scales, Karel van Mander (I), Franco Estius, 1590 - 1594

engraving, h 238mm × w 165mm. More details

A man and woman are sitting on a large pair of scales and being weighed. The bride, holding an open chest of coins, is clearly much richer than the groom, with his bag of coins between his legs. Cupid steals off carrying a sack on his back; there is nothing for him to do, for this is no love match.
