Ewer with Scenes from the Story of Diana, Paulus Willemsz. van Vianen, 1613
The ewer forms a set with the adjacent basin. They are the last works by Paulus van Vianen, who died in 1613. These objects were not made to be used but rather to be admired as works of art. The small, asymmetrical foot is unstable, and the handle highly impractical. The ewer and basin were bought by a Dutchman in Prague who took them to the Netherlands.
