Mark: D 13
Oval-shaped blue and white shaving bowl with a scalloped brown rim. The centre is painted with a bird on a rock and some plants. The well is unpainted. The wide-spreading and ribbed flange is divided into four large and four small panels, framed along the outer rim with a continuous band of flowers and leafy sprigs. The large panels are each filled with a double flower, the smaller ones with an ornament. This decor is derived from Chinese kraakporcelain which was imported on a massive scale in the first half of the seventeenth century by the VOC (Dutch East India Company). It was still much in vogue in the eighteenth century.
