Delft earthenware, since the seventeenth century pre-eminently The Netherlands' national product, is especially widely known by the most spectacular flower vases with spouts. From about 1680 these vases, also called tulip holders, were put on the market in all colours, shapes and sizes. In this publication the significance of the flower holder in the past and the present is discussed with over 200 examples. Although the trend was set in Delft, the 'tulip vase rage' was followed elsewhere soon. Outside The Netherlands, the flower vase with spouts belonged to the assortment of, for example, Rouen and Berlin, while in England vases with spouts were made in creamware.
