Lot Essay

A saucer with an identical coat-of-arms but different rim decoration, is illustrated in D.S. Howard & J. Ayers, China for the West, London, 1978, vol. II, 403, pl. 402. The author notes that these arms are not those of the Van Sundert family, but close to those of the city of Amsterdam. Abraham van Sundert was most likely a merchant or captain trading out of Amsterdam.
