Delft

Delft is a tin-glazed pottery that has been made since the seventeenth century in Holland and England. It is usually decorated with blue on white or with colored decorations. Most delftware pieces were dishes needed for everyday living. Figures were made from about 1750 to 1800 and are rare. Although the soft tin-glazed pottery was well-known, it was not named delft until after 1840, when it was named for the city in Holland where much of it was made. Porcelain became more popular because it was more durable, and Holland gradually stopped making the old delft. In 1876 De Porceleyne Fles factory in Delft introduced a porcelain ware that was decorated with blue and white scenes of Holland that reminded many of old delft. It became popular with the Dutch and tourists. By 1990 all of the blue and white porcelain with Dutch scenes was made in Asia, although it was marked Delft. Only one Dutch company remains that makes the traditional old-style delft with blue on white or with colored decorations. Most of the pieces sold today were made after 1891, and the name Holland usually appears with the Delft factory marks. The word Delft appears alone on some inexpensive twentieth- and twenty-first-century pottery from Asia and Germany that is also listed here.
