"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." (Penny Hebgin-Barnes, Journal of the British Society of Master Glass Painters and The Journal of Stained Glass, vol. XXXII, 2008, p. 193-194)


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 also foreseen.
