The Rijksmuseum has acquired an extremely rare Medieval chain from a marksmen’s guild, made in Bergen op Zoom or Breda. The silver chain from around 1525-1546, partly gilded and enamelled, is a wonderful example of the high quality silversmith masterwork from that period. The chain from the marksmen’s guild was once owned by the legendary French Rothschild family. The acquisition was made possible by a private donation.

The new acquisition, an exceptional 17th-century sculpture by Adriaen de Vries(1556-1626), can be seen from today on in the Gallery of Honour of the Rijksmuseum. The bronze is considered to be one of his best works. No other statue by De Vries has been in Dutch art collections until now.
