Ten Antique Blue and White Delft Chargers from Our Extensive Collection of Delft

$14,800.00

Description

Ten blue and white delft chargers dating from the mid-18th century to circa 1800. Each charger is hand painted in a medium tone of cobalt blue. This medium tone of cobalt coloring allows the chargers to work well together as a group. Further enhancing the grouping the designs all have a good balance of blue on white.

The sizes of the chargers range from 12.25 inches to 13.75 inches diameter with most of the pieces measuring 13.5 inches to 13.75 inches diameter. The scenes vary showing: birds, flowers, landscapes, and a vase on the garden terrace. These are all traditional delft motifs. There are two pairs in the group. Each charger is well painted and stands on its own as a beautiful work of art.

This group would be wonderful placed on a wall, or in a cabinet (we have in the shop several additional chargers of this style if you would like to add to or make changes to this group.)

Background

The technique of making Delft was first described in writing by Gerrit Paape in “The Delft Pottery Maker” written in 1794 and dedicated to Lambertus Sanderus, the owner of De Porceleyne Claeuw (The Porcelain Claw). Delft faience began in the 17th century. Much of the finest Delft was produced in the Dutch city of Delft. The Delft potters began to coat their pots completely in white tin glaze. They then began to cover the white tin-glaze with clear glaze, which gave depth to the fired surface and smoothness to cobalt blues. Over time they created a good resemblance to porcelain. By circa 1650 the technical skills of the potters and painters were much improved, and Delft began its golden age.
