Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The cabinet was probably made as a wedding gift from Jan Brakel to Johanna Vrijmoet in 1672 te Hilligersberg.
The coat of arms on the left showing three dogsheads, belongs to Jan van Brakel, a famous navy officer.The one on the right, devided in four quarters depicting twice three six-pointed stars, and twice a climbing lion, belongs to his spouse, Johanna Vrijmoet. These coat of arms are also displayed on the frames of the portaits of this couple, painted by Daniel Haringh. These portraits are now in the Stichting van Pallandt collection in Keppel.
