Blue and White Dutch Delft Charger Made, Circa 1780



Why we love it: The intense cobalt blue We are pleased to offer this sizeable Dutch Delft blue and white charger hand-painted in deep cobalt blue. This exquisite charger was made in the 18th century, circa 1780. It shows a vase filled with sunflowers and ferns. The design is reminiscent of a peacock displaying its feathers. That is why this pattern has been known since the 18th century as the "Peacock" pattern. The blue on the rim of the charger is painted in. Dimensions: diameter 13.85 inches Condition: Very good Price: $1200 Background The technique of making Delft was first described in 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 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 began to cover 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.
