Take A Look At This

...and well executed. The decoration is very well suited for this Urn. It is an amazing piece. I have always been in awe of the use of one color with gradations to distingush space, shape, forms, and terrain; marvelous stuff.

 

It is located in the Fitzwilliam Museum.

I am thinking Delft pottery from the Netherland. Some kind of coffee urn. Where is the plug?[Just kidding]

TJR.

 

 

 

It was made in the Netherlands by Adrianus Kocx a greek potter his factory was called 'Greek A Factory' in operation from 1686-1701. The roof is removable, the spigot is silver, the clay material is terracotta. It is an urn or a cistern.

The vessel is more than pretty. I have done ceramics in this fashion, it is not easy. I look at the vessel as being well constructed utilizing a very good clay body. It also has an intensive decoration showing great skill of underglaze color mixing and application. The detail and form poses the same curiosity and an almost childlike interest as one would have with a doll's house.
