Set of Six Large Blue and White Delft Chargers Hand-Painted 18th-Century
Why We Love It: The deep cobalt blue is fabulous! This group makes a true blue statement.
We are pleased to offer this set of six Dutch Delft chargers in the “Theeboom” pattern showing a tea plant with a fan-shaped bouquet of leaves and flowers. This is one of the most exquisite hand-painted designs made on Delft chargers in the 18th century, which explains why it was so popular at the time. The pattern is lush and full of color. The deep blue decoration fills the charger. On the border are medallions and scroll designs. The white edges are delicately scalloped, which adds another beautiful dimension to each charger. The chargers have the mark of De Klaauw “The Claw” for Delft made in the last quarter of the 18th century or for LPK for De Porceleyne Lampetkan 1778-1811.
