Two Related Blue and White Delft Vases 17th Century

About

This matched pair of blue and white delft vases dates to the late 17th century. Each vase is decorated with figures and floral patterns. They share the same style of composition. Each long neck is painted with a flower branch and banana leaves pointing to the bulbous body. Around the base of each of the two vases is a ring of banana leaves. One vase shows five figures dressed in elegant clothing relaxing in a picturesque landscape of pine trees and rocks. The other vase depicts a Chinese scholar enjoying himself in a mountainous landscape. He is greeted by his friend or a colleague in official garb. Not far from them, a bearded man also dressed in Chinese official clothing is meeting with a young European man. Taking off his hat, the European man greets the senior official on what seems to be their first formal meeting. The rocks, pine trees, and stone fence next to them suggest that they are in a lush garden setting. Together, the two matched Dutch vases illustrate the wonderful painting skills of late 17th century delft potters. Taking advantage of Asian elements they found on Chinese export porcelains, they made their blue and white pieces as eye-catching as the porcelains.
