Set of Nine Blue and White Dishes Dutch Delft Hand-Painted 18th Century C-1770

$5,800per set

About

This set of nine blue and white Dutch Delft dishes were made in the 18th century circa 1770. The hand-painted design features a tulip bulb in the center and tulips in a circle on the wide border. But, it is the exquisite deep cobalt blue and the beautiful pie crust border which make this set so appealing. The cobalt blue is the deepest I've ever seen on any piece of Delft. And the pie crust edge is a rare treat. Dimensions: Diameter 6 smaller dishes measure 8.5"-9" and the two larger 10" and 10.5" Condition: Excellent with small edge frits invisibly restored Price: $5,800 Background of Dutch Delft: Delft's technique was first described in writing by 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, which gave depth to the fired surface and smoothness to cobalt blues. Over time they created a good resemblance to porcelain. By circa 1650, the potters and painters' technical skills were much improved, and Delft began its golden age.
