Pair of Antique Delft Blue and White Chargers Showing a Garden Scene circa 1780
We are pleased to offer this pair of antique Dutch Delft blue and white chargers made in the 18th century, circa 1780. The center is painted in shades of soft cobalt blue showing a garden scene with a deep rooted pine tree, a large peony, and a garden fence. The central scene is complemented by a border decorated with flower heads and scrolling vines. The edge of the charger is painted with ochre colored slip. Having a pair is always more desirable, and these are particularly appealing as the deep blue in the pine tree contrasts with the lighter blue of the peony. Each charger is marked on the back with the mark of "The Axe". Dimensions: 13.9 inches diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $3100 for the pair Background 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.
