A lovely blue and white Dutch Delft jar with panels painted in deep cobalt blue
showing a chinoiserie scene of a boy and his dog walking near a pagoda.
The covered jar is topped by a traditional leopard finial.
The jar was made in Delft, Netherlands in the late 18th century, circa 1780. The underside of the vase has the mark of the distinguished factory, De Porceleyne Lampetkan which operated in Delft from 1637-1810.

Delft is a type of earthenware which is low fired pottery and is porous unless sealed with a glaze. The delft glaze is essentially a very thin layer of glass deposited on the surface of the piece and fused to it when fired in the kiln. Over 1000 years ago potters in the Middle East discovered that by adding 10-15 percent white tin ash to the glaze they were able to create an opaque white surface which would be more conducive to decoration with colors than the original brown clay body. The use of white glaze over a dark or buff colored pottery body created a "canvas" on which painters could now show brilliant colors which did not show up well on the darker bodies of the earlier pottery. In the Middle ages potters took the technique to Spain and Italy.
In the third quarter of the 16th century the technique spread to Holland and England. During this period the city of delft became the premiere center for this type of pottery which is known today as "Delft".
Our vase has all the wonderful features of 18th century delft. It is decorative, has a wonderful finial, and would make a great addition to any collection of Blue and White.
