Delft Pottery

Delft or Delftware was tin-glazed earthenware that was first produced during the early 17th century, in Delft, Holland by Italian potters that settled there. Many different firms in Delft produced the pottery thru the 18th century.

Early pottery usually had Oriental designs with blue designs on a white background. Polychrome designs followed with green and yellow being the most common colors.

Dutch Delftwares were shipped to England and were copied by English potters in the cities of Bristol, Lambeth, London and Liverpool.

In 1876, the De Porceleyne Fles factory in Delft began to produce porcelain in blue and white with scenes of Holland, that became very popular with tourists.

Delft is still being produced today. By 1990, most of the blue and white porcelain featuring Dutch scenes was made in Asia. Only one factory in Holland is still making traditional delft today.
