Pair of Blue and White Delft Mantle Vases



A pair of Dutch Delft blue and white mantel vases painted in shades of cobalt blue showing a well painted scene of a country gentleman seated on a bench near a cottage. The scene 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. For a similar image of a Dutch Delft figure of a drinker seated on a barrel see Museum number: 1927,1114.1 in the collection of British Museum.

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