A Dutch Delft 10 inch charger where the center shows a beautiful, lively, and very detailed ducks-in-a-pond scene with giant flowers overhanging the edge of the pond, a duck swimming, and a long-tailed bird flying above. The scene and the surrounding border are hand-painted in a variety of shades of cobalt blue. The border has four panels with flower heads and scrolling vines. The underside of the dish with the mark in underglaze blue of De Dissel. This factory was in business from 1640-1701. 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. By circa 1640-1650 the technical skills of the potters and painters were much proved, and Delft began its golden age.
