Objects and the material culture of The Dutch Courtesan

    Print Friendly, PDF & Email

    235mThe Dutch Courtesan features, in its dialogue and in its stage action, a host of objects. Many remain familiar parts of our lives. Others, however, now require explication, and some seem puzzlingly exotic. There is, for instance, the “standing cup parcel-gilt, of thirty-two ounces, eleven pound, seven shillings” which Mulligrub proudly purchases (3.2), or the “flapdragons” which Tysefew boasts he has swallowed in flamboyant demonstration of his love for Crispinella (4.1). This section of the website will gradually accumulate short entries on, and striking images of, some of those early modern phenomena, starting with the “death’s head” rings which bawds, according to Cocledemoy, wear “on their middle finger”, and which allow others to identify their trade (1.2). (The majority of these entries will be researched and written by the project’s student interns.)
