Background of Polychrome Delft

Beginning in the last quarter of the 16th century, Italian artisans introduced tin-glazed pottery painted in polychrome colors into the Netherlands. The defining characteristics of this pottery are a paste that is cream to light buff-colored and decoration that includes geometric, floral, figural, and Chinese motifs painted in iron-red (orange), blue, green, and yellow.
