Background of Delft

The Delft industry in the Netherlands began in Antwerp in the 15th century.
Protestant artisans forced to leave Antwerp due to religious pressure migrated to the northern Netherlands in the 16th century and established the pottery industry primarily in Delft.
The pottery makers in Delft began producing tin glazed earthenware in Chinese porcelain style to fill the market void caused by a war in China. As a result, the Delft pottery industry became very successful and eventually had a range of styles, including European subjects and original styles. At its peak, the city of Delft had almost 40 factories making Delftware.
