Lutma must have been proud of his salt cellars. In this portrait he is depicted next to one. No silversmith before him had had himself painted in this way, with an exact portrayal of one of his masterpieces. Lutma may have been referring to the fact that many painters had depicted Adam van Vianen’s famous ewer of 1614.
