Catalogue Note

See Van Dam 2004, p. 121, fig. 71, where a closely comparable teapot also attributed to Pieter Kocx, now in the Rijksmuseum (inv. no. KB-NM-12400-265), is illustrated. This teapot is decorated in the same fashion by first applying the polychrome decoration and then filling in the white background in black.
