Note Ivo's caution above re Leerdam - I've seen another shorter sloping triangular bubble Leerdam serica vase (loose pyramid shape) - it may be this that Botterweg was basing his identification on - we need someone with his reference - Floris Meydam "In Vorm", page 51 - to look it up

Everybody here is most familiar with the one you describe, usually called the "beech nut" - but I've never seen this tall version, which looks too much like a Gunnel Nymann vase to be believable. But obviously Willem has the In Vorm book - which I have never even seen in real life. Botterweg is the ultimate expert, I've never caught him out with a misattribution.

Hmmm would be interesting if someone had the book.

Anyone?
