Blue and White Delft Charger with Chinese Inspired Scene Made circa 1640-1650

$1,700

About

We are pleased to offer this very special early to mid-17th century (1640-1650) blue and white Delft charger with a Chinese inspired theme. The Delft potter adopted a free and spontaneous style of painting, which recalls Chinese blue and white decorations. The scene shows a scholar sitting in his garden attended by a servant. The Dutch artisan blended Chinese composition into his charger by adding a few jagged rocks in the foreground. This charger would be a wonderful addition to any collection of early Dutch Delft Dimensions: 14 inches diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $1700 Background 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 about 1650 the technical skills of the potters and painters were much improved, and Delft began its golden age.
