Lidded goblet with the alliance arms of William IV and Anne of Hanover, anonymous, 1747
On the front of this goblet are the alliance arms – the combined arms – of Stadholder William IV and his wife, Anne of Hanover. On the back are the arms of the Seven United Provinces of the Netherlands affixed to a rock with the allegorical figure of Liberty. The provinces are united, steadfast as a rock in the sea. Translation of inscription: Shame on him who thinks evil of it / I shall keep / steady as a rock in the sea, so shall our union stand.
