While I've been slacking off on this project due to work and stuff, there's been two new trencher-related articles put on the web.

1) A printmaker wants to recreate a set of trenchers. Like Ivan Day, she's chosen the Griffith set (see previous post) to reproduce, even though the originals were not made with prints. A follow-up post: https://21stcenturyrenaissanceprintmaker.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/the-technique-freak-has-a-challenging-week/

2) https://sites.google.com/site/eikenzwijn/sca-presence/small-stuff by Mergriet van Wijenhorst. She includes a painting that I'd love to get a name/date for, does anyone recognize this? (edited to add, same picture also used on this page: http://www.oldfoodways.info/misc/sca-projects/setting-up-an-elizabethan-feast/)

Did you try the reverse image search on Google yet? If it's the detail, you might not find anything definite.

ETA: I just did, and all I could find was this, which also lists very little info.

I tried google, but could not figure it out, so I used tineye. Only found the three images I already knew of. I'm pretty sure it's a detail hacked out a larger painting, which is going to make it the devil to find. None of them cite it as anything better than "16th century painting (Netherlands)". I did find a facebook page for Mergriet van Wijenhorst, so I'm going to try to write her this evening.
I suspect that it might be a Netherlandish painter working in England. Either way, I really need a decent cite for this painting, even thought the trenchers appear to be so thick I'm wondering if they might be enameled plates.
