This checklist is the first in a series of volumes describing
the silver-stained glass roundels and unipartite panels from the
15th to the 18th centuries to be found in
public buildings, museums and private collections in the present
five provinces of Flanders (Belgium); as well as documented
roundels and unipartite panels whose whereabouts are presently
unknown or which have been moved to other locations or collections
in the past.
The checklist also mentions all known related material, and where
possible, photographs of this material have been added. As far as
the related material is concerned, the relevant publications are
also mentioned. The related material includes direct designs, like
drawings or engravings, and drawings and roundels which belong to
either the same series or which are copies of these series.
The present volume covers the Province of Antwerp. The publication
of the checklists for the provinces of West Flanders, East Flanders
(Vol. 2) and Limburg and Flemish Brabant (Vol.3) are planned for
the near future. An inventory of the roundels in The Netherlands is
"This handsomely produced and expensively illustrated volume is
proof of the fact that Flemish roundels and unipartite panels have
now regained the place of honour that they have always deserved."
