Pair of Blue and White Delft Mantle Vases


Out of stock

A pair of Dutch Delft blue and white vases painted in shades of cobalt blue showing a well painted scene of a country gentleman seated on a bench near a cottage. These large mantle vases feature a scene that is bordered by a dark blue outline and topped by an oversized flower. The blue outline and oversized flower are traditional to Dutch Delft mantle vases.

The finial is a rare example of the “Bobbejak”, the tippler. He sits on a wine barrel holding a jug in one hand and a mug in the other. His head is cocked to one side indicating that he’s tipsy.

The bottom of each vase has the mark of “De Klaauw” and “150” in underglaze blue.


H 14 in. x W 5.5 in. x D 4 in.


Excellent. Small edge frits invisibly restored.
