18th Century Dutch Delft De Klauw Peacock Vase Pattern Large Pottery Dish c1770 (Code 2127)
A large 18th century Delft dish. It is in the peacock vase pattern and dates around 1770. The body is of course earthenware with a tin glaze and yellow around the rim (to simulate gilt). To the reverse you can find the De Klauw mark with a painted number 5 numeral and further marks above. Note the pierced hole in the foot rim for which the top blew out during firing.
The dish is of shallow form with an ogee type profile. These items were made to compete against Chinese imports which were very expensive during this period.
Chips and glaze losses all around the rim. Typical period glaze flaws from production with pin holes in the glaze (mostly to the reverse). Some kiln grit adhered in the glaze. Some period wear and scratches. No cracks detected and rings true.
