Note:

These bottles arrived undecorated in the Netherlands where they were decorated in the Chinoiserie and Kakiemon style with red, green, blue, black, yellow and aubergine enamels and sometimes with gold.
“Dutch” decorated white Arita bottles are often called “Amsterdam’s bont”. However this kind of decoration was not only done in Amsterdam but in Delft, the Dutch provinces, England and Germany as well. The larger bottle, for instance, is likely to have been decorated in England, Lowestoft.
