A Chinese black ground trumpeter ewer after Pronk, Qianlong

L.: 14 cm - H.: 12 cm

This rare pattern with its Turkish-looking musicians wearing American Indian headdresses is one of a small group of designs associated with Dutch artist Cornelis Pronk (1691-1754), though no original drawing has been discovered. Two 'Trumpeter' tea services seem to have been made, this one and one with a simpler spearhead border, possibly slightly later.

Estimate: € 4000 - € 8000
