Made in the 18th century circa 1780 this exquisite design shows a vase filled with sunflowers and ferns. Although made of flowers the design is reminiscent of a peacock displaying its feathers, and has been known since the 18th century as the "Peacock" pattern. The rim of each charger is painted with traditional yellow slip. This pair is part of our large collection of Blue and White Dutch Delft which includes a number of pieces in the Peacock pattern Dimensions: diameter 13.75 inches Condition: Excellent Price: $2900 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.
