The porcelain dish is surrounded by other objects that bear witness to Dutch taste in the 17th century. It holds pepper, an expensive product that not everyone could afford. A hallmark in the form of the arms of Amsterdam is stamped on the lid of the jug, alluding to the city’s key role as a centre of trade.
