This vase is painted in the style of Samuel van Eenhoorn. The painted motifs seem to have been delicately placed on the glaze, which shades subtly vary from light blue to grey-green and white. In the most remarkable objects, the clothing and facial expressions are highlighted by a blue, black or violet outline known as ‘trek’.

A blue and white rouleau vase with figures in a landscape, marked for Samuel van Eenhoorn, is illustrated in Aronson 2004, p. 60, no. 62.
