Buyer NotesIn April 1639, a number of former apprentices in the gilded leather making craft testified at the request of the painter Willem Bartius in the name of Christiana Dircx, widow of Jacob van Ipen, in his life master of gilded leather making, that they had learned the craft from the latter (NA 921, Not. Barent Jansz. Verbeeck). The painter Willem Bartius was the brother-in-law of the painter Pieter Symonsz. de Potter, who married his sister Aechgen Paulus (Oud Holland 11(1893). p. 37). In June 1636 (exact date unknown), the painter Pieter Potter, Pieter van Dam, and Jacob van Ipen set up a company with a store (winckel) for joint exploitation and profit. Pieter Potter would live in the store with his family until the part of the profits to which he was entitled was sufficent to pay for the upkeep of his children (tot dat de voors. syn paert de winckel so veel geeft dat hij sijn huijs daer van kan houden). One fourth of the profits would go to Pieter van Dam, one fourth to Potter, one fourth to van Ipen, the remaining fourth would be reinvested. All three undertook to work at the common craft (hantnering), which may have been the decoration of leather (NA 373, fol. 190, Not. W. Cluyt). On 8 July 1636, Pieter Potter, 36, and Willem Bartgens, 29, declared at the request of Pieter van Dam that the employee (knecht) of Marten van Heuvel had said, within hearing of the witnesses, that the octroi for making gilded leather was null and void (te niet was), that he had worked for four years in the making of gilded leather, and that he (Marten van Heuvel?) had 50 knechten, not counting the silverbeaters (silverslagers) and ropemakers (leertouwers) (NA 843, Not. Hoogeboom).
