Jewellery Box - Yoka Van Den brink, Hindeloopen, 1993 Reg. No: SH 931250
- Jewellery Box painted by Yoka Van Den Brink in 1993, using Hindeloopen techniques and motifs and a contemporary colour scheme.

Motifs include flowers, scrolls, buds, birds and sometimes bible scenes and landscapes.
- Wooden box constructed from craft wood with a bevelled edge along the lid and base. The lid hinges open. The box is painted blue except for the edges which are terracotta coloured. All surfaces have been painted in the floral motifs of the Hindeloopen style. The underside has been signed by the maker.
