Violin, anonymous, c. 1705 - c. 1710

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.

On display in room 2.22
