A collection of Scheveningen dishes. Painted in the Japanese style copying a Dutch Delft original in the manner of Frederik van Frytom, the pattern traditionally also known as Deshima Island, depicting three figures and a bull in the foreground of various buildings around a harbour, all within a washed blue wave pattern border on the flat everted rim. The view of this well known pattern is thought to depict the Dutch coastal town Scheveningen, possibly inspired by a Dutch Delft plate by the well known pottery painter Frederick van Frytom (1652-1702). A Japanese Arita dish painted with a similar landscape is known in the Netherlands as a view of Scheveningen. This scene has also been referred to as Deshima Island, which was a fan-shaped reclaimed mudflat in Nagasaki harbour and was the V.O.C.'s headquarters in Japan from 1641-1862, but considering the stylistic similarities with the Delft prototypes and the characteristically Dutch details of this scene, this seems unlikely.
