Blue and White Delft Mantle Jar Hand-Painted 18th Century Netherlands Circa 1780
A blue and white Dutch Delft mantle jar hand-painted in exquisite deep cobalt blue. We see a peacock in a garden filled with flowers and ferns. The cover is similarly decorated and topped with a traditional round knop covered in blue. Made in the Netherlands circa 1780, jars like this would have been placed on a mantle or a bracket.
