Small Blue and White Hand-Painted Delft Plate Made, circa 1740

$285

About

A small blue and white English Delft plate made circa 1740. The hand-painted decoration is naive, showing a garden fence, a leafy tree, and a butterfly. On the border are leaves and flowers. The tin glaze is applied thinly, showing the underlying color of the Delft dish. Dimensions: diameter 8." Condition: Good with small edge frits, which can be seen in the images. Price: $285 Background of English Delft: The art of making Delft began in England in the Mid-1500s. An English delftware jug has been found in East Malling, Kent, with a silver mount hallmarked 1550, which is presumed to be the earliest English delftware manufacture date. John Stow's Survey of London (1598) records the arrival in 1567 of two Antwerp potters, Jasper Andries and Jacob Jansen, in Norwich, where they made "Gally Paving Tiles and vessels for Apothecaries and others...” The production of Delft reached its high point in the mid-1700s 20 years after this dish was made; after that, creamware pottery began to replace Delft as the useful pottery of the English middle class.
