  1. Interesting piece! The ebony chest is decorated in the Hindeloopen style, and the little cup on the left looks like a piece of Delfts’ Blue ceramics. Also the vase on the right looks like a Dutch vase. The Netherlands were officially part of the Spanish Empire until 1648, interesting to see how a Spanish artist got hold of several Dutch items.
