Another Lutma

I think this is another Dutchman named Lutma; Johannes Lutma the Elder, who was a Gold and Silvermith. He has the cool hammer too, plus the can of chasing tools behind, in the shadows.

And I tracked down the object in the portrait; a salt cellar
(they often have maritime themes, shells and seaweed etc.)
He was noted for his particularly auricular style ( scrolly designs that look like ears)
