Tankard with Dutch Silver Lid


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This tankard is one of a pair in the Walters collection made for export to Europe, specifically to Holland through the East India Trading Company. The white body has slightly bowed sides and a handle, which are painted with underglaze cobalt blue decorations. A river landscape includes a grazing horse attended by a man beneath a willow tree. Scrolling clouds surround the base and the upper rim is decorated with a band of chrysanthemum. A silver lid engraved with a crest was mounted to the porcelain once it arrived in Europe.
