Dim.: 37 x 26 x 17 cm
Decorated with the arms of the 'Gaal' family'.
Ref.: Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Object number BK-NM-12400-15, for a similar example with the same coat of arms. The chinoiserie-decorated panel on the lower part of the museum's example is different to our current example. The museum's example shows important restoration in this section, so this one has likely also have served as an applique. The suspension hole on our current example appears to have been widened, the rocaille element on the upper part is missing.
