Notes: I didn’t know this word

This word came into English in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
The word comes from middle French clinking, the past participle of clinquer, which comes from the Dutch word klinken (to sound). I don’t really mess around with fine art stuff, which may be why I haven’t run across this word.
