Large Pair of Blue and White Delft Vases Antique Made, 20th Century

About

We are pleased to offer this pair of Dutch delft blue and white jars. They are octagonal, fluted. Painted in cobalt blue they are decorated with scenes in panels. The crisp blue decoration creates a distinctive contrast with the underlying white body of the jars. The scenes alternate with one showing a young woman standing before a pagoda holding a basket of flowers. While the other panel shows a garden with songbirds perched in a flowering tree. Beyond the tree we see a garden fence. The cover of each jar is topped by a traditional lion finial. Dimensions: 20.5 tall x 10.25 across the widest point Condition: Excellent Price: $2300 for the pair Background of delft: The technique of making delft was first described in writing by Gerrit Paape in "The delft Pottery Maker" written in 1794. Dedicated to Lambertus Sanderus, the owner of De Porceleyne Claeuw (The Porcelain Claw). Delft faience began in the 17th century. Much of the finest delft was produced in the Dutch city of delft. The delft potters began to coat their pots completely in white tin glaze. Later they began to cover the white tin-glaze with clear glaze, which gave depth to the fired surface and smoothness to cobalt blues. Over time they created a good resemblance to porcelain. By circa 1650 the technical skills of the potters and painters were much improved, and delft began its golden age.
