Bird on a basket dutch delftware

Always sought after for its soft blue on white tones, Delft adds drama as “table top” decoration for your early furniture. In the 17th and 18th centuries Dutch makers copied the Chinese porcelain that was imported by the Dutch East India company as the fashion for oriental style grew. All shown below are of the 17th or 18th century. All of the decoration is handpainted on tin glaze pottery. Please note that because of their nature, losses and restoration is common to these wares, but not unreasonable for objects of 200+ years age, of course. You will find our prices most tempting and reasonable by comparison. Any repairs have been done to a professional standard. A desirable ovoid form with a bird on a basket enclosed with arabesque scrolls. Period lid may not be original. Restored.

H. 15″, w. 8.5″.
