This extremely rare flower vase, probably intended for displaying tulips, has an understated and classic elegance and a confident purity of design that doesn’t need to apologize when standing next to the extravagant and fanciful figures that the factory’s great artist Bustelli designed. There are a many examples of this kind of vase in faience and Dutch Delft, but it is rare in porcelain from any factory, and I’ve been unable to find any vase of this type from Nymphenburg. (For an interesting sidelight, one can research the extravagant prices paid for tulips during the years of the “tulip craze.”) The end of one of the four side spouts is missing and the repair needs to be renewed. Otherwise, it has no damage. Underneath, this vase has the incised shield mark (hard to photograph but guaranteed) and the number 5. It is five inches tall.


A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
