Description
A colourful Japanese Arita vase dating from ca. 1680 which has been clobbered in Europe, possibly in Holland, in the early 18th century.
Now converted into a charming table lamp and fitted with a hand carved and gilt wood base and an antiqued brass plate for electrical use.
Clobber ware: A traditionally derogative name referring to export porcelain that has got its original underglaze blue and white decoration added onto in Europe with a later colored enamel decoration. The secondary decoration were sometimes limited to only a new or additional borders, sometimes rough foliage, figures, animals, birds or full landscapes or sceneries, sometimes adding to the old decoration, sometimes randomly filling all available space and sometimes just disregarding the old underglaze blue and white decoration as if it wasn't there.
The practice seems to have originated in Holland but spread over Europe with the availability of items to decorate. This kind of work was extensively done both in Holland and in England during the 18th century.
