CATALOGUE NOTES

A rare export blue and white goblet. Above a spreading domed foot the bowl is raised on a central knopped stem and the fluted sides flare out at the top rim. The joint of the cup and stem is delineated by a double band of painted and molded flower-filled petal panels below a continuous band of scrolling flowers and foliage. The knop in the stem is emphasized by erect plantain leaves while smaller pendant plantain leaves encircle the rim. Background: See Chinese Ceramics in the Collection of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, p. 264 where Christian Jorg mentions that stem cups or goblets are very rare, and that they may have been intended for the consumption of genever (Dutch gin).
