Absolutely Exquisite Delft Tulipiere (fluted Flower Vase) - Rare, One-of-a-kind For Sale

Absolutely Exquisite Delft Tulipiere (fluted Flower Vase) - Rare, One-of-a-kind

A tulipiere or tulip holder is an ornate vessel in which to grow tulips and is usually made of hand-crafted pottery, classically delftware. They are typically constructed to accommodate one tulip bulb per spout with a larger common water reservoir base. They were not designed as vases for a cut bloom, as is sometimes supposed.While fairly uncommon in modernity, during the 17th Century tulipieres were used to grow tulip bulbs indoors and were common pieces of decorative art that could often be found in the houses of European elites. After the advent of large-scale global trade in the 17th Century, numerous flower bulbs from Asia, such as the tulip, crocus, and hyacinth became luxury items in Europe and these bulbs remained an exotic novelty until the end of the 17th Century. Large floor-standing pyramid-shaped tulipieres were particularly ornate and were used as a status symbol to indicate the owners wealth.You are looking at an extremely rare and one-of-a-kind Delft Tulipiere. This large-scale tulipiere would make an exquisite addition as a centerpiece or could be placed on a sideboard in a dining room of 18th or 17th Century design.The surface of this extroadinary tulipiere depicts images of flowers, leaves, scrolls, and unique Delft designs with unique handles in the image of a bird or some other animal.This tulipiere consists of three pieces. 1) The base; 2) the vessel; and 3) the spouted top.This tulipiere is approximately 15" high (all three pieces together)
The width at its widest point (handle to handle) is approximately 14".It appears to me that this tulipiere has not been used as a tulipiere as I do not see any water marks or mineral deposits anywhere.This exquisite piece is in mint condition. No nicks, chips, cracks, repairs whatsoever!!!!The style of my dining room is 18th Century and if I had not already spent years collecting pieces in blacks and greens, I would keep this incredible piece. Even my oriental rug clashes with it.This outstanding Delft tulipiere could be an extraordinary focal point to any finely furnished room.If you are the winning buyer, please pay via PayPal within three days of your purchase.I will pack this piece with extreme care and I will, of course, insure it. As always, free local pick-up.Also, if I've over-charged on the shipping, I'll credit you back with the difference.Thanks so much for looking!
