History

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. By about 1650 the technical skills of the  potters and painters were much  improved, and Delft began its golden age.
