The concept of sets of ornamental vases came from China. Potteries in Holland and elsewhere, particularly those at Delft, soon copied it. This plate shows the range of wares made by one particular factory. It included teapots and what appear to be spittoons (containers for spitting in). The factory has not been identified.
