    De Ruyter is probably "Michiel Adriaenszoon de Ruyter (24 March 1607 – 29 April 1676) is the most famous and one of the most skilled admirals in Dutch history. De Ruyter is most famous for his role in the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 17th century. He fought the English and French and scored several major victories against them, the best known probably being the Raid on the Medway. "

    This is a silver model. According to the Tulsa Daily World. (Tulsa, Indian Territory [Okla.]), 30 Dec. 1915. Page 1, Col. 5. "The battleship Texas today received a solid silver model of an anclent warship, the gift being from the Holland-American line in appreciation of the rescue of passengers and crew from the steamship Ryndam, which was in a collision with the steamship Joseph Cuneo near Nantucket lightship last May. .... The warship model whlch stands four feet high, is that of the Zeven Provlncien, the flagship of Admiral DeRuyter, famed in the history of the seventeenth century."
