Lot Essay

This is one of four designs attributed to Cornelis Pronk (1691-1759), the other three being 'The Doctor's Visit', 'The Potentate' and 'Hand Washing'. The design of 'The Archer' is only known on a small group of vessels including urns and basins in different sizes decorated in colored enamels or in underglaze blue and gilt. For an example of each, cf. Chinese Ceramics in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Christian J.A. Jörg in collaboration with Jan van Campen, 1997, pp. 285-286, pl. 331-333. See also Pronk Porcelain C.J.A. Jörg, 1980, no. 52; L. Scheurleer, Chine de Commande, 1974, no. 123; D. Howard and J. Ayers, China for the West, pp. 294-295.
