A pair of Antique Delft lidded vases
A pair of blue and white Delft lidded vases, Chinoiserie inspired with a pair of birds and floral peony images. The porcelain jars are octagonal in shape and have a ribbed exterior, with lids surmounted by acorns. There are original Delft markings to the bottom showing the pharmacy bottle with the intertwined initials of JT (Joost Thooft, the owner of the company in 1876). Delft painters work the traditional decorations by hand with black paint containing cobalt oxide. The firing process changes the colour to blue.
