Two Dutch Delft pottery plaques, Moses in the Bulrushes

Late 18th or early 19th century, Netherlands

A pair of mirrored plaques, decorated in blue and white with manganese marbled effect borders. One scene has the text "Exod 2:5" written, which refers to the Biblical text: "The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the Nile, with her maidens walking alongside the Nile; and she saw the basket among the reeds and sent her maid, and she brought it to her." Illustrating the Old Testament story of Baby Moses. These plaques are not marked but were probably made in Friesland in the early 1800's.

34.5 x 26.5 cm
