Description

Perhaps the closest recorded example is the flower bowl published by Michael Archer, Delftware, The Tin-Glazed Earthenware of the British Isles, London, 1997, p. 365, I.4-6. A pair painted with Chinoiserie figures was in the John Philip Kassebaum Collection, sold, Sotheby's London October 1st 1991, lot 43. In the second half of the 18th century the flower bowl form was incorporated into a tiered flower vase as the base section. An example of this type with two additional tiered sections was in the Lipski Collection, sold, Sotheby's, London, March 10, 1981, lot 160. A four tiered flower pot is illustrated by John C. Austin, British Delft at Williamsburg, Williamsburg, 1994, p. 263, no. 627.
