Dutch Delft Blue and White Jars with Lion Finials Made

About

We are pleased to offer this beautiful pair of Dutch delft blue and white ginger jars with lion finials. They are molded in the traditional delft octagonal shape with a fluted surface. The jars are decorated with panels showing a songbird in a garden, and a flower filled vase on a table. The different shades of cobalt blue give liveliness to the decoration. Dimensions: 13.25 height x 6.75" across the widest point Condition: Excellent (small edge chips invisibly restored) Price: $3200 Background of delft : By the middle of the 15th century potters from southern Europe migrated through France to the Netherlands, and the earthenware industry became well established in Antwerp. In the second half of the 16th century, under religious pressure, many of these protestant artisans were forced to leave Antwerp. Most moved to the northern Netherlands. The rise of the potting industry in the northern Netherlands occurred simultaneously with the decline of the beer brewing industry in the town of delft. As the delft brewers ceased production, their large abandoned buildings on the canals were quickly occupied by the pottery makers who could utilize the large spaces and the convenient water source for the transportation of their raw materials and finished wares. In the middle of the 17th century a war in China interrupted the production of Chinese blue and white porcelains to Europe. The potters in delft were able to fill the void in the market and they began producing earthenware’s in the style of Chinese porcelain, which they successfully marketed as “porcelain.” Within the next century and a half, the delft pottery-makers became increasingly successful and their range of styles broadened to include European subjects and other original styles. At the height of production the city of delft counted almost 40 factories. So successful were the delft factories that many factories across Europe and especially in England across the channel began to produce delftware.
