gold (metal), h 28cm More details

A parure is a set of matching jewellery. The Dutch writer Potgieter commissioned this set as a gift for a relative. Potgieter was among the first to devote attention to women of the Golden Age in his books. The seven historic figures illustrated here demonstrate the virtuousness of Dutch women. The medallion contains a photograph of Potgieter and a lock of his hair.
