About

We are pleased to present this Dutch delft blue and white antique ginger jar painted in a deep cobalt blue. The jar is decorated all around with sprays of chrysanthemums. The top, shoulders, and base are painted with scrolling vines and flower heads. Made in The Netherlands in the mid-19th century the jars measure 15.5 inches tall. This jar would look beautiful in a home either on a mantel or in a corner niche. Dimensions: 15.5" height x 7.25" diameter at widest point Condition: Excellent Price: $1800 The technique of making delft 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 white tin glaze. They then began to cover the white tin-glaze with 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 technical skills of the potters and painters were much improved, and delft began its golden age.
