Blue and White Dutch Delft Dish Made, Circa 1760

$950

About

Why we love it: The cobalt blue is exquisite! Provenance: An identical dish is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. For an image of this identical plate and a discussion of its origins, see: E B Schaap "Delft Ceramics at the Philadelphia Museum of Art" pages 74 and 75. We are pleased to offer this Dutch Delft dish in the "Theeboom" pattern showing a tea plant with a fan-shaped bouquet of leaves and flowers. It was quite popular in the mid-18th century. The decoration fills the well of the charger. On the border are medallions and floral designs. The edges are delicately scalloped, which adds another beautiful dimension to the dish. Dimensions: 10 inches diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $950 We also have a selection of 13"-14" diameter chargers in this pattern in the shop. History of Delft: The technique of making Delft was first described in Gerrit Paape in "The Delft Pottery Maker," written in 1794. Dedicated to Lambertus Sanderus, the owner of De Porceleyne Claeuw (The Porcelain Claw). Delft faience began in the 17th century. Much of the finest Delft was produced in the Dutch city of Delft. The Delft potters began to coat their pots completely in a white tin glaze. They then began to cover the white tin-glaze with a clear glaze, giving depth to the fired surface and smoothness to cobalt blues. Over time they created a good resemblance to porcelain. By circa 1650, the technical skills of the potters and painters were much improved, and Delft began its golden age.
