For a vase of similar scale and decoration, see Dave and Robert Aronson, Dutch Delftware (Amsterdam, 2004), pp. 56-58. The present lot is a little richer in the decoration of the lappets on the shoulder, which appear to be related to the designs of Daniel Marot. Both vases show the level of quality that Samuel van Eenhoorn had achieved at De Grieksche A pottery. The scale of the vase is in itself a testament to the prosperity and prestige of van Eenhoorn's pottery, which supplied pieces to the House of Orange. He was one of the most influential of pottery proprietors, being one of three men sent to England in 1684 to represent the Delft potteries protesting against the embargo the English had placed (in 1672) on importation of Dutch Delftware. For an octagonal section vase of similar form, size and decoration, see Elisabeth Neurdenburg and Bernard Rackham, Old Dutch Pottery and Tiles (London, 1923), pl. XXVII, fig. 42.
