Delft, Pair of Blue and White Garlic-Head Bottle Vases, circa 1700

$6,107.36per set

About

The octagonal bottle vases stand on a wide, spreading foot with a garlic neck over a spherical body ending in a trumpet-shaped mouth. The vases are painted with a continuous chinoiserie design. Around the foot, the body, the neck and the bulb four continuous landscapes are painted, -in which Chinese figures are depicted. The trumpet-shaped mouths are painted with a notched scroll motif above a double line. Delft 1700-1710. The decorations of these two garlic-head vases are based on those on Chinese porcelain of the Kangxi period (1662-1722). This blue and white Kangxi porcelain is famous for its clear creamy white glaze as well as the bright blue tones of its paintings. The unknown Delftware potter who made these vases, tried to imitate this clear creamy white glaze. And he succeeded to a great extent: this pair has a thick layer of fine white and creamy glaze. The way in which this decor has been executed is also special. In most cases the garlic-head neck and foot are painted with ornaments separated from each other by lines, panels or planes, and the chinoiserie landscape, the main motif, is only depicted on the bulbous body. These vases are an exception to his rule. Dimensions: height 36.5 cm / 14.17 in, greatest diameter 18.0 cm / 7.09 in. The vases are about 320 years old and have several small older restorations to feet and upper rim as well as the usual small glaze chips, see photos. I carefully package all items in a double-box and use first class packaging material.
