Large Dutch Delft Hand Painted Vases a Pair with Cashmere Palette

$12,800per set

About

Why we love it; The painting is delicious! This pair of antique Dutch Delft polychrome vases is hand painted in the exquisite Cashmere palette of intense greens, blues, and oranges. Made in the factory of "The Claw" the vases show an all around scene with long- tailed birds in a flower filled garden. The use of the Cashmere palette with these colors first appeared in Delft potteries between 1700 and 1720. The color combination was inspired by the arrival in Europe in the late 17th century of Chinese Famille Verte porcelain. Both vases have the mark of "The Claw" in underglaze blue on the underside. Background of Delft: The technique of making Delft was first described in writing by Gerrit Paape in "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. 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.
