Similar examples: The decoration on the edge of the plate is very similar to the one on a bowl attributed to Willem Jansz. Verstraeten, which resides in the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem (inv. no. OA 93-131), and which is illustrated in Biesboer 1997, p. 94, no. 104. Another similar charger, but with the depiction of a deer, is illustrated in Aronson 2018, p. 11, no. 5.
