Delft or Haarlem, 1650-1680
This large charger has a wide-spreading flange and is decorated in the center with a coat of arms in blue, made up of a shield adorned with two helmets and mantle. The shield is divided into three sections of which the upper two show two facing crowned eagle heads and the lower one a jumping Unicorn. The coat of arms has not yet been identified and may very well be of foreign origin. A notable feature are the white dots and specks in the blue pigment.
