Late 17th century

Oviform ewer with wide neck and pinched sprout, the curved handle placed at an angle to the sprout, decorated in underglaze blue with flowering plants, two flying birds and a roundel with the initial “L”, probably standing for 'limoen' (lemon).

Note:

Other small Arita ewers used at the dinner table of VOC officials are decorated with an “A” for azijn (vinegar), “O” for olie (oil) or “S” for soja (soy).
