This fragment of painted glass displays a portion of a cartouche with an inscription. Not enough survives for us to understand its original context but it probably formed part of an armorial display.

The fragment was painted with only a simple brown/black pigment. This type of painted decoration is known as 'grisaille'.

The Netherlands glass workshops produced a large amount of painted glass. Many of these were commissions from civic, mercantile and church officials within the Netherlands but also from abroad.
