Drucker vases, Anonymous, c. 1700

porcelain (material), h 48.1cm × w 14.2cm. More details

French 19th-century connoisseurs devised the system of familles, or families, to denote various kinds of porcelain. Pieces in which green predominates, for example, are called famille verte. Around 1900 famille noire, with a black background, was the most prized type and very expensive. The collector J.C.J. Drucker donated this pair of vases to the Rijksmuseum in 1928 to mark the seventieth birthday of Queen Mother Emma. They have since become known by his name.
