D8228. Blue and White Small Plaque

Delft, circa 1705

Painted with a tavern scene of peasants reveling and watching a couple dancing to the music of a horn-player, a skeptical cat seated on the tiled floor in the foreground, the rounded self-frame with a blue-ground border of large blossoms and profuse foliage and interrupted with four molded oval panels painted at the sides with a dancing Chinese boy (Zotje) and at the top and bottom with a long-billed bird amidst grassy plants, and the top further molded with a shell-form crest pierced with a hole for suspension, the reverse unglazed.

Height: 22.9 cm. (9 in.)
