Antique Hand-Painted Blue and White Dutch Delft Dish Made 18th Century c-1730-40
Made circa 1730-40, this 18th century Dutch Delft dish is hand-painted in cobalt blue. It is decorated with exceptional blue and white sponge work. The scene shows three Dutchmen in the countryside. The seated pair seem to be playing cards while the third man looks on. All around them the foliage is sponged. The sponged “tree” to one side is particularly wonderful. This dish is a remarkable piece of Delft.
