Vertical panel with the design for a pendant verso at center. The ornament is decorated with a flower-arabesque pattern, with a stick or plant rising from bottom center and a large flower in each of the ornament's three arms. Flanking the central motif are diamond shaped ornaments that may be designs for earrings or buttons. From a set of ten plates with pendant designs, five of which show deities in niches. Four designs in the series are decorated exclusively with ornate flower-arabesques and are most likely designs for pendant versos. This plate belongs to the first edition, published by Hans I Liefrinck in Antwerp before 1573. Jan Collaert I produced several series of plates with pendant designs, a practice continued by his son, Adriaen Collaert.
