Silver, Masterpieces of Delft silver 1590-1800
1 June 2020 through 3 January 2021

In the early 17th century, Delft silver was among the finest in the Low Countries. Museum Prinsenhof Delft is presenting an overview of the most beautiful silver objects produced in Delft; Nautilus cups, drinking bowls and unique table ornaments from the 17th century, as well as showpieces for tea and dining ceremonies, and precious 18th century toilet services are on display. 
The graphic pattern used throughout the exhibition, and on all other communication about the exhibition is based on makers' marks that can be found on silverware and resembles the brilliance of silver which is an important part of the story in the exhibition.
