D0456. Blue and White Plate

Delft, circa 1690

Similar example:

A footed dish with a chinoiserie scene in the center and the mark of Samuel van Eenhoorn, but with an identical peony border, is illustrated by Van Aken-Fehmers, Delfts Aardewerk, Vol. I, pp. 73 and 90, no. 1, suggesting that this plate probably dates from early in the Adriaen Kocx production at De Grieksche A.
