Dimensions: diameter 12.5" Condition: Excellent with very small edge frits invisibly restored Price: $1560 Background of English Delft: The art of making Delft began in England in the Mid-1500s. An English delftware jug has been found in East Malling, Kent, with a silver mount hallmarked 1550, which is presumed to be the earliest date of English delftware manufacture. John Stow's Survey of London (1598) records the arrival in 1567 of two Antwerp potters, Jasper Andries and Jacob Jansen, in Norwich, where they made "Gally Paving Tiles and vessels for Apothecaries and others...” The production of Delft reached its high point in the mid-1700s around the time this pair of chargers were made; after that, creamware pottery began to replace Delft as the useful pottery of the English middle class.
