KLM オランダ航空 Delft Blue House No.38のモデルになった家の詳細情報
The beautiful, well-preserved building at Herengracht 607 was built in 1670 together with the ones at 609, 611 and 613.
It has a dated bell-shaped gable and a stone beneath the attic hatch with the date 1670. The fa?ade has a middle ressault (a portion of the fa?ade that projects somewhat from the rest) that was created for the aesthetic purpose of emphasising the building’s vertical character. This middle ressault is crowned by a triangular pediment. Beneath the pediment is the lifting beam surrounded by a sandstone garland. In 1747, the building was sold for 13,600 guilders to Jacob Bicker Raije (1703-1777), a famous Amsterdam diarist.
