This Belgian lay matches the Hoogen Tekst Romein upper case VV 2,6,R47-B (undated, but probably pre 1876) on view in the Plantin-Moretus Museum. The companion Lower case is Onder and the empty case is Hoogen Tekst Romein.

The |t box represents long s and t ligature. The fi ligature box may be a misplaced character, as fi also appears in the Onder case. The case is 33½ x 13¾ inches overall. Note that there are only 6 rows of boxes, unlike U.K. and U.S. upper cases, which have 7 rows, as do two other Upper cases in the Museum, eg Laagen Ascendonica and Klein Canon Romein.
