D1784. Polychrome Armorial Plate
Delft, circa 1760
Painted in the center in shades of blue, iron-red, green and yellow with the coat of arms of the Deckkers family, consisting of a squirrel above three French lilies, the crest surmounted by a helmet with closed vizor and topped with a squirrel, all above the initials R.D, the rim decorated with stylized flowers alternated by insects.
22.3 cm. (8.8 in.)
The arms and crest are those of the Deckkers family, which was alternatively written as Deckers, Decker or Dekker. Typical of armorial wares, this plate was probably commissioned by a family member to commemorate a special event, for example a marriage. According to the Wapenboek (Book of Coat of Arms) in Collection W.A. des Bouvries, p. 22, the coat of arms of the Deckkers family consists of a squirrel seated on a green ground, against a silver background, accompanied in the bottom part of the crest by three red lilies against a silver background.
