Condition Report

One handle with traces of restoration, the other appears intact. The piece originally raised on six feet though these appear to have been lacking for a long period of time. The piece has been sprayed making it difficult to determine extent of damage. The interior decoration does not appear to have any over painting but there are scattered areas to the blue of the exterior. The piece is in overall good appearance.


In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.

 NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.

Catalogue Note

Seventeenth and eighteenth century Dutch Delft wine cisterns are rare survivals compared to their counterparts in silver and copper. A close slightly larger example of this form, also marked for Lambertus van Eenhoorn, is in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, gifted by Nijstad Antiquairs, N.V., in memory of A. Nijstad, obj. no. BK-1960-173. A further example marked for Eenhoorn raised on paw feet (the present example was also probably originally raised on paw feet), is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, acc. no. 1971.33.
