Pair of Antique Blue and White Delft Vases Mid 18th Century

About

We are pleased to offer this exquisite pair of Dutch Delft blue and white vases. They are hand-painted in a medium cobalt blue with an all around scene in the "Thousand Flowers" style of the mid-18th century. A similar pair of vases can be found in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum in the Bradbury Bedell Memorial Collection. The vase shows flowers, leaves, and scrolling vines. The design is lively, and the painting is well done. The shape of the vase is traditional to Dutch Delft .Place this vase in a room with other colors and something magical happens; all the colors in the room come out more sharply. By putting the right items together each enhances the other. We find that Blue and White in particular works in any setting, in a formal dining or living room, with yellow in a kitchen, and certainly with other blue and white. Dimensions: 17.5 inches tall x 7 inches at the widest point condition: Excellent price: $6200 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. They then 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.
