Blue and White Delft Jar Hand-Painted Circa Circa 1780
This large blue and white Delft jar is hand-painted showing beautiful flower-filled baskets on white tin-glazed ground.
We see sunflowers and tulips overflowing baskets alongside floral decoration with scrolling vines.
The ribbed body sits on a traditional octagonal base. The ribbing adds life to the decoration as light plays over the curves.
Across the middle of the jar, we see a band of cobalt blue with panels of flowers.
The underside of the jar has a typical 18th-century mark “2” used in the factory to denote this particular size and shape jar.
Dimensions: 17″ tall x 8.5″ diameter x 5″ across base
