Description

The form imitates the vases produced at Nevers in the late 17th century. Frank Britton, in London Delftware, London, 1986, p. 136, nos. 100-101, illustrates two bleu persan rope-twist vases excavated in the City of London, and suggests two different production sites on the basis of the difference in ground color. A vase in blue and white was in the Louis L. Lipski Collection, sold, Sotheby's, London, November 17, 1981, lot 254. 

A very similar vase of this height and decoration is published by Frank Britton, English Delftware in the Bristol Collection, London, 1982, p. 98, fig. 7.3. A vase of near identical form appears in a still life painting by the English artist Benjamin Ferrers (Fl. 1695-1732), from the Marquesses of Lothian Collection, sold, Sotheby's London, December 8th, 2016, 107. The vase although painted with Chinoiserie figures in colors, features a similar low turned rim and upturned footrim.
