Vintage Colonial Williamsburg Reproduction Delft Punch Bowl Oud Holland C44 1969 For Sale
I'm selling some items from my Aunt's estate so I don't know everything about them. If I've missed something you are interested in, please ask. I want your offer.
This sale is for a Colonial Williamsburg reproduction delft punch bowl made by OUD of Nijmegen Holland. The original was excavated in fragments from the site of the Coke-Garrett House in Williamsburg. The generous size of this punch bowl is enhanced by the nicely scaled design of birds, flowers and leaves in the traditional shades of blue. It is just slightly under 6” high and 10” in diameter. On the bottom it has the oval “4CW” restoration mark and an incised date of 1969. It’s in excellent condition. Please take a look at the pictures.
Delftware was a common pottery in Colonial times. These reproductions were made with essentially the same techniques as were the originals. Each piece is lightly fired before it is dipped in tin-enamel glaze, which is allowed to dry. The decoration is then applied by a skilled artist. After another final firing, a final glaze is applied for brilliance, and one last firing completes the process.
Sorry about the shipping but it’s heavy, weighing 3 pounds unpacked. Please check the shipping calculator for cost to your area. Shipping includes delivery confirmation and, because it is breakable, insurance.Also, and paypal fees are about 20% of the selling price. A small "handling fee" has been added to help defray these costs.
