On the foot and in the spade are horizontal thick and thin incised lines visible.
This vase is purchased at the exhibition Lucie Rie and Hans Coper 1967 in Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam by jonkvrouwe Carla de Jonge, of noble birth and former Director of the Central Museum in Utrecht, and then by inheritance in possession of the present owners.
