The tulip vase is a popular Delft Blue gift. The separate openings allow the flowers to stand out beautifully and the vase is a real showpiece. Traditionally, the vase is not only used to hold flowers or tulips, but also as a decorative piece. In the 17th century, a time when the tulip was very exclusive and expensive, people showed that they were wealthy with the tulip vase. It was therefore known as a status symbol.
