In the morning light, Delft blue tulpenvaas, or tulipiere, with Parrot tulips. Later in the week, photos of our place during the home tour, I hope.


  1. I've always wanted a Delft tulpenvaas. Where can I get one without robbing a museum?

  2. Online is the short answer - ours, not an antique, was a gift when we left Holland - but if you look at


    you might find some. Ours was bought in Amsterdam by our friends so tulipieres must be available there. They're abominably expensive. I've always wanted one in pure, undecorated white - a pyramid such as the one that William and Mary had at Het Loo, though their's were in blue and white.
