Description

Few examples of this form appear to be recorded in the literature. A smaller example but with similar decoration is illustrated by Michael Archer and Brian Morgan, Fair as China Dishes, English Delftware from the Collection of Mrs. Marion Morgan and Brian Morgan, Washington, 1977, p. 58, no. 33, which the authors compare to a jar and punchbowl in the same collection (nos. 31-32), the latter dated 1693. A second example closer in scale to the present lot, painted with a Chinoiserie figure, is illustrated by John. C. Austin, British Delft at Williamsburg, Williamsburg, 1994, p. 202, no. 405. A further example was sold, Sotheby's London, March 25, 1980, lot 23.
