About

This charming blue and white Dutch Delft jar is decorated in shades of cobalt blue. Hand-painted in the late 18th century circa 1780, the jar mixes rococo and chinoiserie design elements. We see a modest house with blossoming fruit trees and pine trees. Beyond the house, we see water and a pagoda on the far shore. The cover is decorated with flowers. The finial on the cover has traditional blue stripes. On the reverse side of the jar is a single artemisia leaf, a Chinese symbol of wishes for good health. The shape of the jar is a traditional Dutch Delft round form rising from a round foot. Dimensions: 11.5" tall x 6" diameter at the widest point x 3.5" diameter at the base Condition: Excellent Background of Delft: The technique of making Delft was first described in writing by Gerrit Paape in "The Delft Pottery Maker," written in 1794 and dedicated to Lambertus Sanderus, the owner of De Porceleyne Claeuw (The Porcelain Claw). Delft faience began in the 17th century. Much of the most beautiful Delft was produced in the Dutch city of Delft. The Delft potters began to coat their pots thoroughly in a white tin glaze. They then covered 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.
