Description:
London delft wine bottle, mid-17th Century, and dated 1658. White-glazed spherical body with a short tapering cylindrical neck and slightly wider cylindrical rim, a loop handle with a pointed terminal, and a horizontally-ridged foot, and inscribed on the front in blue WHIT i658 above an elaborate squiggle. 5⅞ in. h. Condition: The glaze slightly crackled and very speckled, possibly from a later firing, suggesting that the inscription was later added and the bottle refired, a theory supported by the seizing up of the glaze on the footrim.
