  • Pair of Large Blue and White Delft Chargers Made, circa 1780


    We are pleased to offer this pair of large blue and white Delft chargers made by and with the mark of “The Claw” factory in the Netherlands, in the 18th century, circa 1780. The design is exuberant – as though the artist wanted to fill the entire space with delightful motifs. In the center is a vase overflowing with curving branches of leaves and flowers, but beyond this are much more stylized elements repeated around the entire dish. We see rows of fruits or berries, leaves, daisies, flowerpots holding roses, and large fanciful blossoms around the rim. Everything is connected with stripes, spirals, circles and scrolls to make a harmonious whole, a feast for the eyes.

    These chargers will work well in a traditional or contemporary home.

    This pair is part of our large collection of blue and white Dutch Delft, which can be viewed here.

    Dimensions: 14 inches diameter

  • Pair of Chinese Blue and White Moon Flasks Hand Painted Qing Dynasty, circa 1880


    This pair of hand painted Chinese blue and white moon flasks date to the 19th century of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). The body of each vase is fully decorated with a pair of fabulous dragons and floral scroll patterns all executed in a freehand and vibrant style. The pair of dragons represent the forces of nature and are meant to be awe inspiring. They symbolize the protection which that awesome power coveys. The flower design in the center of the body is reminiscent of Xifan hua, or “Flowers of the Western Regions,” an important decoration that can often be identified on earlier Qing porcelains. The decorative handles on each moon flask are in the form of two chi-dragons, designs that can be found on classical bronzes. This gives these Qing era moon flasks an archaic touch. In Chinese society, archaic designs originating from the Prehistoric dynasties of Shang and Zhou (circa 3000 BCE) are thought be unparalleled in their historic and artistic value.

    These exquisite flasks would be a good companion to any traditional or contemporary home.

    Dimensions: 9.85″ tall x 7″ wide x 2.5″ deep

    Condition: Excellent with a very small, 1/4 inch flake on the inside of the mouth of the vase invisibly restored.
