Tulip vase inspired by Rijksmuseum paintings
A tulip vase (also flower pyramid or flower holder) is a vase that is made to use cut flowers and tulips in particular, but mainly serves as a decorative piece. In the 17th century, the (ceramic) tulip vases came from Delft and were decorated with a Delft blue or Chinese decor.
Tulip vases were called flower pyramids or flower holders at the time. They were placed in the center of the table as showpieces, even without flowers.
