THE PROPERTY OF THE LATE SAMUEL JOHN COUNT VAN LIMBURG STIRUM
The majority of the following 16 lots have not been on the market since at least the beginning of the 19th Century. They were collected by Willem Borski (see for his portrait as a child lot 87) for the mansion Elswoud near Overveen.
They were inhereted by his son Willem Borski Junior (1799-1881), and came successively to Johanna Jacoba van der Vliet, née Borski (1828-1812), to Mathilda Wilhelmine Johanna Jacoba van Luden née van der Vliet (1857-?); thence by descent to Marie Louise van Limburg Stirum née van Luden (1887-1962) who was the mother of the late owner.
