Jan Borman II

An original signed JAN BORMAN II ( JAN BORMAN de jongere ) oak sculpture with its history and newly discovered facts, with the great possibility that this sculpture was once part of the missing second altar which Jan Borman II has made for the Chapel of the Holy Arnold in the St. Pieters Church in Leuven and where from till now on no other parts are known and with the great possibility that one of the figures is Desiderius Erasmus who was admired in the town of Leuven in the period that this altar was made. The order to make the second altar came from the St. Arnoldes brotherhood and of the brewers of Leuven.

Circa: 1490-1510

high:  57 cm   wide:  65 cm   deep:  13 cm

History of the sculpture:

Sold by us to an Amsterdam collector in the nineteen eighty’s.

In the nineteen ninety’s this collector planned to donate this sculpture to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the sculpture was examinated by the experts of the Rijksmuseum and accepted for a planned donation.

From circa 1999 till 2010 there was an extensive correspondence between the former owner and the Rijksmuseum about the sculpture and the plan was discussed to donate the sculpture to the Rijksmuseum. In this correspondence the Rijksmuseum clearly speaks about a group by Jan Borman and that this sculpture would be an enrichment for the medieval collection of the Rijksmuseum. ( this complete correspondence is in our position and will only be available for the buyer.)

Due to the economical financial world crisis the former owner decided not to donate the sculpture to the Rijksmuseum after all, but to sell it and the first he thought of was us, as the former sellers.

We bought the sculpture back from the collector and started a renewal research on the sculpture.

We compared again our sculpture with the famous St. Joris altar and again we came to the conclusion that our sculpture was made by the same sculptor, Jan Borman II, ( JAN BORMAN de jongere) who made the St. Joris altar for the town of Leuven in order of the crossbow guild for the chapel of Onze Lieve Vrouw van Ginderbuiten in 1493.

On this altar you can also find, several times the same figure, the man with the long beard, which you can see on our sculpture as well, described on the St. Joris altar as: Emperor Diocletianus.














The St. Joris altar is signed in fragments, one part only: JAN  (on a sword)

and the date is carved on the belt.

Very striking is that the signature on our sculpture is also in fragments and carved on the belt as well:

  ” IH MAN I “  

which stands for: JOHANNES (JAN)  (BOR) MAN de jongere = JAN BORMAN II

This was also concluded by a well known Dutch curator, who gave us the explanation of the signature.

Many more details are also similar for example: the stones on the surface of the substrate, partly covered with grass and you’ll find this also by the St. Joris altar and in particularly the character heads clearly come from the same master hand and striking is that the eyes, the eye lids and the faces are carved on the same way and by the same hand.

Technical both altars were built up in the substrate from small blocks of oak.

By our sculpture the robe of Emperor Diocletianus is carved in the same way as the robe of  Diocletianus of the St. Joris altar and also one knee with a boot is clearly visible and carved in the same way by both figures.

Striking is also that the rim of the robe exactly has the same ornament by both figures.

Also both hats are the same with on the hats a crown.

Over the last thirty five years we have also discovered that there is a great possibility that the second figure on the left could be: Desiderius Erasmus.

It is known that Desiderius Erasmus was already in 1502 very famous and respected in Leuven and the University offered him an appointment, but he refused.

It is also known that he lived in 1504 in Leuven and that he was for a very long period the guest of Jean Desmarais, Professor in the Rhetoric and Canon of the St. Pieters Church in Leuven and it is of course a co-incidence that Jan Borman II has made the second altar for this church in 1506/7, so it could very well be that there were contacts between Jan Borman II, Jean Desmarais and Desiderius Erasmus and because Erasmus was well respected in Leuven there is a possibility that Jan Borman also has used Erasmus out of respect as a figurant in this altar as one of the circa sixty other figures which are usually used to complete an altar decoration.

It is also known that Erasmus has lived in Anderlecht. ( Bruxelles ) where Jan Borman II lived as well.


That we think about Desiderius Erasmus is based on all this information and on his charismatic face, the long strait nose, the hollow cheeks with the S shaped line beside the nose going down to his lips and his protruding chin, all characteristic features.

That the figure of Erasmus on our sculpture has been carved in profile might come from an engraving of Erasmus, which was used as an example, because it is was known that Erasmus promoted himself with prints of engraved self-portraits.

This together with the clothes and the profile of the face completes the Erasmus characteristic look.







That we maybe can speak about the discovery of the first part known of the missing second altar carved in order of the brewers of Leuven, is also based on the substrate where the four figures are standing on, showing three water springs and it is known that there is a legend of the beer brewers of the Holy Arnold that the first water was used for the beer they made, so the legend of the Holy Arnold reflects on our sculpture, which could have been made for the Chapel of the Holy Arnold in the St. Pieters Church in Leuven in order of the beer brewers of Leuven. ( This information we received from a well- known Belgium curator.)

It is also known that the Holy Arnold was the patron saint of the beer brewers in Leuven.


A discovery of a magnificent and beautiful unknown, signed JAN BORMAN II sculpture.

The Only Known Erotic Signed Cornelis Bellekin Mother of Pearl Carving, Dutch  17th Century


A very rare Dutch mother of pearl carving by:  CORNELIS BELLEKIN, second half 17th.century.


This very unusual carving of Cornelis Bellekin is the front of an ostentation powder flask. (Prunk Pulver horn, pronk kruidhoorn)

The back of the powder flask is with plain mother of pearl, whole over mounted in gilded bronze.


Diam: 13 cm


This is the only known Cornelis Bellekin carving showing a completely naked female figure in the person of Venus, sitting beside a mirror and a jewellery box with a pearl necklace. Behind her two love birds, above her Mercury in the clouds and beside Venus also a cupid with a bow.

Opposite Venus four wine / grape drinking bacchants and a cherub in the air all seated

by a brook/lake within the distance a castle.


Very fine carved and engraved.

Signed: C B = Cornelis Bellekin. c. 1650 – c.1700


Very important by this work of Cornelis Bellekin is the overall excellent condition.

Most of the time, carvings of Cornelis Bellekin are over polished and all the fine details are not visible anymore, but in this case the carving and the engraving is still in magnificent condition.

This is the first erotic subject known by Cornelis Bellekin.

There are other carvings known of Bellekin with naked female figures but they all have draperies between their legs and by our carving every detail is clearly visible.


The whole shell including the profile is in original condition.

At eleven o’clock, you’ll see a small insert in the profile and this is original because on this place the used sea pearl mussel shell has a heavy thickness and goes in a half circle in wards.

To keep the shell as large as possible Cornelis Bellekin has filled this gab with a piece of mother of pearl.


The shell has no cracks or restorations.


To your information:

We are familiar with the work of Cornelis Bellekin since we have sold in the past the two largest known mother of pearl shells by Cornelis Bellekin with the subjects: “ De wonderbaarlijke visvangst” (A wondrous catch of fish) en “ De vlucht naar Egypte” (The escape to Egypt) and another small oval Cornelis Bellekin shell coming from the collection of: Albertus Seba and documented in his Thesaurus, the catalogue of the Albertus Seba collection, which we discovered, is now in the collection of the Amsterdam Historical Museum.

A rare, very decorative oak hall bench,

beautiful carved after a design of Daniel Marot.

Interesting to see is, that the carved middle panel

with playing children is exactly after a design of:

     Daniel Marot, ( 1661-1752 )

and  this design is illustrated in the book about Daniel Marot

By: Dr.M.D.Ozinga.

The bench still has the original old patination and

was never painted,

the bench dates from circa: 1715.

214cm long 135cm high 40cm deep


 Attributed to:

Ignatius van Logteren, Amsterdam, (1685 – 1732.)

Interesting to see is that at the front of a gentleman’s house

at the Herengracht 433 in Amsterdam two of exactly

the same Satyrmasks are carved out above the front door.

Ignatius van Logteren has done many facades and

interior designs and carved oak stair cases for houses in Amsterdam and many of them

after designs of: Daniel Marot.

Even more interesting is, to compare our bench

with the famous, large Dutch Delft blue

and white tiles, made for: Hampton Court,

( now in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum.)

These tiles have exactly the same panel and subject with the playing children as on our bench.

We have never seen this subject somewhere else,

so it might be possible that there is a connection

between our hall bench and the blue and white tiles made for Hampton Court.

Bur-walnut Amsterdam long case clock,


Circa: 1735

The movement made and signed by:

OTTO van MEURS ( 1714 – 1783 ) Amsterdam

( citaat……” beroemde horlogemaker”….)

( = famous clock maker )

The beautifull engraving of the dial of this clock

is exceptional with a portrait of:

WILLIAM the Fourth, Prince of Orange Nassau, ( 1711-1751)

and of his wife:

ANNA van HANNOVER, Princes of Orange Nassau, ( 1709-1759)

There marriage was in: 1734,
Also the signature is in beautiful calligraphy.

It is possible that this clock was made on

the occasion of this royal wedding.

Also very exceptional is that the whole walnut case

shows hollow corners, which we have never seen

before by any other clock of this type.

The three original gilded bronze figures

are still on top of the clock
