Silver, Masterpieces of Delft silver 1590-1800
1 June through 3 January 2021
In the early 17th century, Delft silver was among the finest in the Low Countries. For the first time in 50 years, the Museum Prinsenhof Delft is presenting an overview of the most beautiful silver objects produced in Delft. A total of 80 masterpieces from the period when the art of Delft silversmiths flourished will be on display: showpieces like 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. Highlights from the museum’s own leading collection of silver will be supplemented with exceptional pieces on loan from both foreign and Dutch collections. Immerse yourself in a unique spectacle of silver, discover why the art of silver was often more highly valued in the 17th century than the art of painting and how silver has been connecting generations with each other for decades.
