    Maybe G.M.Hendrickx? Both Hendrickx and Deligne are Belgian names.

    Jivvy the research is my favorite

    I do not think this is your guy (Gus Hendrickx), but I've landed on him a couple of times (on a couple of different sites) and there are a lot of letters from/to him and info I cannot read.

    Google says the language is Dutch.

    Probably not the guy -- 8th regiment.

    BUT. "De Linge" still may be helpful in sorting the info on the art. Not helpful to me because of a major language barrier. But maybe to someone else. <wink wink nudge nudge> @Any Jewelry

    Thanks, interesting stuff! Maybe one of the Hendrickx family members who posted or provided that info would know the person mentioned in the Shell inscription.
