A Delft blue and white tulipierie with hand painted patterns, providing the same appeal as the pictured peacock.
Peacocks strut, birds fly, flowers bloom. All this life of the Dutch Golden Age is captured in blue and white on this showpiece of ceramic.
A symbol of royalty worldwide due to their extravagant plumage, peacocks were a staple of the era's art. They were synonymous with wealth and status, particularly with the Ming dynasty. Chinese military officials would wear peacock plumes in their hats to further cement the association. Not only was the symbol of peacock feathers exclusive, but the ability to paint them was also too: few artists could. Both the technique required and the power that inspired it was rare, making this piece an ode to prestige.
