About

We are excited to offer this exquisite pair of Dutch Delft blue and white chargers made circa 1770. This plate features a beautifully symmetrical design showing delicate flowers and scrolling vines. Dimensions: 10.5" diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $2100 Background of Dutch Delft: By the middle of the 15th century, potters from southern Europe migrated through France to the Netherlands, and the earthenware industry became well established in Antwerp. In the second half of the 16th century, under religious pressure, many of these protestant artisans were forced to leave Antwerp. Most moved to the northern Netherlands. The rise of the potting industry in the northern Netherlands coincided with the decline of the beer brewing industry in the town of delft. As the delft brewers ceased production, their large abandoned buildings on the canals were quickly occupied by the pottery makers who could utilize the vast spaces and the convenient water source for the transportation of their raw materials and finished wares. In the middle of the 17th century, a war in China interrupted the production of Chinese blue and white porcelain to Europe. The potters in delft were able to fill the void in the market, and they began producing earthenware in the style of Chinese porcelain, which they successfully marketed as “porcelain.” Within the next century and a half, the delft pottery-makers became increasingly successful, and their range of styles broadened to include European subjects and other original styles. At the height of production, the city of delft counted almost 40 factories. So successful were the delft factories that many factories across Europe and especially in England across the channel began to produce delftware.
