Rembrandt van Rijn silk pocket square - 'The Syndics'0201042.00159
'The Syndics' or in Dutch 'De staalmeesters' was painted by Dutch Master Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) in 1662 and is officially called 'The Wardens of the Amsterdam Drapers' Guild' ('De waardijns van het Amsterdamse lakenbereidersgilde'). This oil on canvas painting depicts the sampling officials, drapers who were elected to assess the quality of the cloth produced by weavers offering that cloth to members of the guild. The piece was originally commissioned by the drapers' guild, and is currently part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
The pocket squares are printed in Macclesfield, a town in England with a history of over 300 years of silk production and printing.
The edges of these pocket squares are expertly rolled by hand by our artisan tie maker in Italy.
