Clara Peeters porcelain box

Porcelain. 10 cm in diameter x 4 cm in height.

Shell collecting was very popular among 16th-century elites, a product of the fascination with exotic objects that followed the great European expeditions, hence their representation in numerous still lifes, as in Still Life with a Sparrow Hawk, Fowl, Porcelain and Shells (1611), painted by Clara Peeters, whose Hexaplex rosarium occupies a central place on the lid of this small porcelain box.
