A ceramic plaque from The National Maritime Museum - Het
Scheepvaartmuseum, Amsterdam. Part of a matching set. The
decoration is based on an engraving by A. Allard ca.
Made in Delft ca. 1750-1760
The object was broken into two pieces and had been restored
sometime in the past. The old restorations had turned very yellow
and were due for upkeep.
The old adhesive was still strong so only the discoloured old
restorations had to be removed so new fills could be made and then
