~ Mark AVB attributed to Arent Van Bolten
Arent Van Bolten is nowhere recorded as silversmith however we find indications that he exercised silversmith’s trade thanks to drawings kept in British Museum under the indication Bolten von Swol.
Born to Zwolle probably in 1573, Arent Van Bolten is inspired by silversmiths of Leeuwarden. Numbers of these drawings are silversmith’s projects for cups, salt cellars, vases. He died before 1633.
