Delft earthenware refers to the Dutch production settled in number near to Delft, since the 17th century. This earthenware became famous because it succeeds to imitate the Ming Chinese dynasty porcelain, blue and white.
Those porcelains were known trough all the Europe, thanks to the India Companies and more particularly the Dutch East India Company created in 1602. Delft potters, despite the lack of kaolin that prevent to get the same results as the porcelain, they managed the creation of earthenware items very close to porcelains thanks to a tin glazed background covered with another layer, the kwaart, a lead solution that became solid as glass after firing.
First, Delfts imitated Chinese motifs and then explored other solution, such as flowers and plants. Also, polychrome Delfts appeared progressively even if the white and blue production remains the most famous one.
