violin, h 63cm × w 23cm × d 10cm More details

This tin-glazed earthenware violin cannot be played, for it is a decorative object. When the collector John Loudon purchased it for a record 1500 guilders in 1876, this violin was considered to be the absolute masterpiece of Delft earthenware. The modelling and painted decoration certainly make it an exceptional object.
