Inscription

across bottom of plate: Iacques Iordaens invent et pinxit / Cum privilegio; Accubuere Dei quid agat cum Baucide coniux / Unus ubi villae pauperis anser opes? / Hunc tamen hospitibus Domini mac lare paratis, / Sed leuis annosas effugit ille manus. / Unica viuat auis vestrae custodia villae / Talibus hospitibus nam voluisse satis. / Nicolaes Lawers sculpsit
