Vase (Netherlands), ca. 1700

This is a Vase. It is dated ca. 1700 and we acquired it in 1986. Its medium is tin-glazed earthenware. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Among the most prized items brought back in trade by the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century was Chinese blue-and-white porcelain. Quick to try to replicate the look, the town of Delft had so many factories that specialized in blue-and-white earthenware that the resulting production became known as Delftware.

This object was bequest of Walter Phelps Warren. It is credited Bequest of Walter Phelps Warren.
