Lidded ewer, Adam van Vianen (I), 1614

silver, h 25.0cm × w 14.0cm × d 9.0cm × w 910.0gr. More details

The body of this bizarre ewer features Auricular-style decoration, that is, fluid earlobe-like forms flowing into one another as though someone has stirred a syrupy substance with a wooden spoon. Emerging from this mixture is all manner of terrifying part-human and part-animal creatures. Adam van Vianen made this ewer in memory of his brother Paulus van Vianen, who had died in 1613.
