Plate with the Arms of Holland


Description Provenance Credit
Description The coat of arms represented here is of the province of Holland, the most powerful and prosperous of the United Provinces. It included most of the major cities: Amsterdam, The Hague, Delft, and Leiden. The Dutch taste for Chinese porcelain created a fashion for commissioning and displaying sets of plates with Dutch motifs, especially the arms of the seven provinces.
Provenance Purchased by Philip B. Perlman, Baltimore, [date of acquisition unknown] from Walters sale; by bequest to Walters Art Museum, 1960.
Credit Bequest of Philip B. Perlman, 1960
