18th Century Dutch Delft Blue and White Tulip Vase 'Tulipiere'

About

An 18th century Dutch Delft blue and white five finger tulip vase made by De Metalen Pot, circa 1750. The vase is painted with birds among peonies and rockwork. The five openings at the top are decorated with leaves and scrolling vines. The handles are in the form of panthers climbing up each side of the vase. The description does not do justice to this wonderful Delft vase. It must be seen with tulips (see figure # 2). Dimensions: 7.5" across x 8.25" height x 3" deep Condition: Small edge chips invisibly restored Price: $6,800 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.
