This marriage mortar is made by Mamees Frémy in October 1620. This mortar was made for the marriage of Hans Wilhelm Cloothack and Elisabet Jacobs Zyltoch. The inscription on the mortar says 'HANS WILHELM CLOOTHACK EN ELISABET IAKOBS ZYLTOCH’ ‘MAMEES FREMY ME FECIT ANNO 1620 IN OCTOBER'. The words in the inscription are seperated with a decorative flower. This mortar is decorated with two friezes. The upper frieze depicts a lion flanked by two birds of prey, surrounded by grapes and foliage. The frieze below is decorated with a ram's head surmounting a coat-of-arms held by two human figures.
