Blue and White Delft Tulipiere or Tulip Holder Made 19th Century circa 1880

$2,800

About

This blue and white Dutch Delft tulipiere or tulip holder shows a lovely romantic scene. We see a shepherdess delicately walking onto a stepping stone at the edge of a stream. The reverse shows sandy dunes and sailing ships in the water beyond. The foot of this tulipiere is oval-shaped and decorated with a lattice-work design in cobalt blue. The tulipiere was made in the last quarter of the 19th century, circa 1880. It measures 10.5" across x 9.5" tall x 3.5" deep. Condition: Overall, the tulip holder is in excellent condition with a single small flake-shaped chip on the inside of the unglazed foot (see image #5) Price $2,400 Five-finger tulipieres are a traditional Dutch Delft form that originated in the 17th century. Background of Dutch Delft tulipieres: A Delft tulipiere or tulip-holder is a vessel in which to grow or display tulips. Typically they are constructed to accommodate one single flower per spout with a shared water reservoir. During the 17th through the 19th centuries, tulipieres were used in prosperous homes to display tulips. In addition, they were popular pieces of decorative art.
