Delft Holland 9 ½” Deco Vase,Turquoise, Brass
Delft Holland 9 ½” Deco Vase. This is an unusual color & pattern for Delft. I have never seen name or a description of it, so the best I can offer is that it is turquoise and a chrome-like charcoal color, in a pattern that resembles roots and fissures in rock. I know from having a damaged piece in the past that the base clay is a whitish, somewhat soft, powder-like clay. This and many of the pieces I have seen are trimmed with actual brass fittings. Some are trimmed with gold as in some of the others I am also listing at this time. There is a few small dings in the top lip of this vase, and a bit of very mild tarnish, but otherwise, no damage of any sort, and displays very well. Marked faintly “HOLLAND, DELFT”, in ink, in two lines on green felt, on bottom. This item will also be displayed for sale at Best Antique Mall, Lincoln, Mo. so please check with me regarding availability.
