A pair of Dutch delft pancake plates decorated all-over with a colorful design of panels showing blue tulips and green leaves. The strong design is accented by areas of red cross hatching which complements the blue and green tulip decoration.
These delft dishes would look great on a mantle or hung on a wall.
They would make a great addition to any collection of polychrome delft.
History of Delft:
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".
