The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has acquired an important medieval chain produced at the marksmen’s guild Saint George of Zevenbergen.

The piece is believed to originate in either Bergen op Zoom or Breda

It dates to between 1525 and 1546 and displays exceptional silverwork. It was formerly part of the collection of the Rothschild family.
