Pair of Blue and White Delft Vases

$2,800

About

This pair of Delft vases were made in the last quarter of the 19th century, circa 1880-1890. They show a masterful combination of color and form. The deep and medium blue coloring work together beautifully. The vases have a rounded octagonal shape with vertical fluting. The fluting adds to the play of light on the surface, giving a sense of movement. The all-over decoration of flowers and scrolling vines is lovely. Dimensions: 13" tall x 6" at the widest point x 5.35 across the base Condition: Excellent Price: $2800 Background of Delft: The technique of making Delft was first described in writing by Gerrit Paape in "The Delft Pottery Maker," written in 1794 and 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 covered 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.
