Items that have passed through the hands of this renowned antiques firm reveal the passion for silver miniatures in the Netherlands during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Each chapter examines top quality works in this field, accompanied by explanations of occupations and objects that have passed into history and the way some of these wonderful things were used.
