Cornelius Kierstede American
Derived from Dutch, Scandinavian, and English sources, brandywine bowls were used on festive occasions such as the kindermaal, when women gathered to welcome a newborn child. Following Dutch custom, a bowl would be filled with raisins and brandy and passed from guest to guest. Here, boldly chased tulips create a sumptuous effect. The bowl belonged to Theunis Jacobsen Quick, a wealthy baker, and his wife, Vroutje Janse Haring.
