    What is real Dutch Delftware?

    Sometimes the term delftware is used to describe any blue and white ceramic item. However, authentic beautiful delftware is hand painted by experienced artists and tin-glazed by a process developed over centuries. The results are one-of-a-kind items treasured by knowledgeable owners.

    History of Dutch Delftware

    Delftware is named for the Dutch city of Delft. In the late 16th century, prohibition closed Dutch breweries. Many of the vacated buildings were used by the fledgling, but growing delftware industry. The development of the tin-glazing techniques evolved slowly through many countries from the Orient to Italy. It was perfected by Dutch artisans.
