10 Mar NEW BOOK: ‘Delfts Zilver’
We are delighted to inform you that the book `Delfts zilver’ by Dr Pieter Biesboer, in close cooperation with Jacob J. Roosjen, was launched last night. The first copy of the book was presented to Ms Janelle Moerman, Director of Museum Het Prinsenhof in Delft. The launch was hosted by Christie’s Amsterdam in their venue. The hardcover book of more than 600 pages will stun the reader because of its extensive and informative content with detailed photographs of extraordinary silver objects made in Delft by Delft masters and photos of their maker’s marks, dating from the 16th century till 1807, the year the guild system was abolished. Later this month an exhibition on Delft silver will open in Museum Het Prinsenhof in Delft, which will run from 27 March till 23 August 2020, an excellent opportunity to find out for yourselves that there is more to Delft than just its well-known blues and whites!
