Pair of Small Blue and White Dutch Delft Vases Made, 18th Century circa 1760

$4,300per set


This pair of blue and white Dutch Delft vases was hand-painted in cobalt blue. The exquisite blue decoration features an all-around scene in the "Thousand Flowers" style of the 18th century, circa 1760. Each vase shows a songbird In the midst of flowers, leaves, and scrolling vines. The design is lively, and the painting is beautifully done. The quality of the glaze is exceptional. The softly rounded octagonal shape of the vases is traditional to Dutch Delft. This pair was made by and has the mark of "The Three Gilded Ashcans." A similar pair can be found in the Philadelphia Museum collection in the Bradbury Bedell Memorial Collection 1921-3-159, 160. Place these vases in a room with other colors, and something magical happens; all the colors in the room come out more sharply. Dimensions: 10.75 inches tall x 5 inches at the widest point Condition: Excellent Price: $4300 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.
