More information


In the 17th century, a similar tazza would have been given as a gift to celebrate the birth of a child. A small figure of a baby (Hansje) lies under the dome at the centre of the tazza. As the tazza is filled with wine, the figure floats to the surface, symbolising birth. A similar tazza can also be seen in the painting by Peter Willebeeck.

The small dolphin tax mark was used from 1859 to 1893 on silver objects with old hallmarks.
