1685-1700 Dutch Frame at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "A tour de force of carver’s art, this frame, together with its pair (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), was most likely made to display a marriage portrait, the unidentified coat of arms in the cresting referring to the sitter." However, it has since been fitted with glass and is displayed in the museum as a mirror.

Produced in relatively large numbers, these rosary beads were carved of many pieces of fine-grained boxwood.
