Catalogue Note

This bowl belongs to a group by Henricus Boelen with palm-chased sides and twisted wire handles, including one at the Museum of the City of New York (Waters 2000 no. 16, p. 119-20) and two at Winterthur (Quimby 1995 nos. 153, 154, pp.196-97).  The form is a continuation of one produced by his father, Jacob Boelen, and often decorated with embossed flowers, such as one of 1690-1710 now at Yale (Buhler/Hood 1970 no. 556, p. 12).  Dr. Deborah Waters has linked this form with listings in New York inventories of "a small brandy cup" (1685) and a "large silver dram cup" (1694).
