Room 6 – Silverware Exhibition

Read the following text about Delft Silverware:

Silverware is one of the things that is displayed in the museum. During the 17th century, lots of silver was being traded in exchange for spices such as nutmeg.

Even pepper was being exchanged for silver, a common spice that can be found in every ordinary kitchen nowadays.

Currently spices are not worth that much, but silver is still being worshiped like royalty.

Unfortunately for them, the Netherlands did not possess endless amounts of silver.

Recapturing silver was something they did too, and some admirals were very good at it.

It eventually came to an end, the 17th century, and a lot of silverware, including cutlery, jewelry and vases are stored in the silverware room.

These expensive items are stored in this museum and available to the eye of many tourists.

You are now in the silverware room, and I recommend to take a peek, it’s now or never!
