Beautiful and im-perfect delft pitcher that we have re-wired into a lamp. Early 19th century. Delftware or Delft pottery, also known as Delft Blue[, is blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands starting in the 16th century. During the Dutch Golden Age, the Dutch East India Company had a lively trade with the East and imported millions of pieces of Chinese porcelain. Native Dutch scenes with windmills and fishing boats, hunting scenes, landscapes and seascapes my dutch friend tells me this is the history of holland laid out in pictues. What a beautiful way to transmit history and this is a classic example of this. This piece has lots of vintage wear including chips but also does have that gorgeous crackling in the glaze that we love so much. We also love the chinoiserie pattern that can blend so well in so many different decorating schemes and patterns. I have added a herringbone linen cord reflecting the same colors as in the vase, there is an american plug that is on the vase so no rewiring is necessary. The linen shade is handmade by a french artisian. It has a constrasting passmenterie cord that coordinates with the vase to give it some extra pop, notice how she made a rosace on the back two seams where the linen comes together at the seam. Will double box the vase/lamp and the lampshade for safe shipping!!
Circa; 1900-1909 for the vase
Height: 10 inches/23 cm tall and 18/cm
Lampshade measurements; 9" tall for the linen shade
