I can't possibly say enough about this fabulous pair of 18th century Delft vases.
They come as a pair which is increasingly hard to find with the older pieces of Delft, made in the Netherlands around 1770-80's, original tin glazed blue and white with a lovely lustre.
They are of a flattened hexagonal urn shape both with the original covers which have stylised bird finials, the birds pecking on a ball.
The body of the vases has a hatched blue and white along with a front central naive farm image, there are some low relief accents at the top of the vases of grapes.
The back has a hand painted pattern and both of the birds are glazed blue.
There has been repair to the bird finials and there are marks here and there commensurate with the age and the soft glaze of delftware, I have to say though that these are in outstanding condition considering the age.
They are just magnificent and the finest details show when studying them closely.
They have a mark on the underside but this has significantly faded over the years though it is believed that this is the Weesp mark of either the late 1770's or 1780's.
Beautiful pair of 18th century vases that would take pride of place on any mantlepiece.
Approx 13" height, 7" width and 3.5" depth / length
