Dish, De Metaale Pot, after Lambertus Cleffius, c. 1680 - c. 1690

h 5cm × d 30.5cm. More details

This dish stands out not so much for its decorations, but rather the empty spaces between them. The painter boldly left large areas of the plate unpainted, which was rarely done in Delft. Precisely because of this emptiness and because the scene is off-centre, this plate has a decidedly Asian appearance.

On display in room 2.22-11
