F.Bodenheim Collection, Amsterdam (paper label on base)
Fritz and Mary Biemann Collection, Zurich - purchased from Nysfad at a fair in Delft, 6th July 1965
A variation of the allegorical theme of mockery on the present lot appears in a copperplate engraving illustrated in the Teutsche Sprichwörter from the first half of the 17th century inscribed 'Den spott zum schaden'. However, as with most allegorical and moralising examples, the decoration on this flask appears to be unique. Stylistically, the decoration may be compared to that on other glasses such as the humpen from Samuel Prager of 1609 in the Museum für Kunsthandwerk in Frankfurt am Main.
