Charming little Delft blue and white period vase, newly converted, to light up a discreet corner decorated with all round flowering foliage in good condition. Circa 1790.

Delftware is a tin glaze pottery, mostly produced in the city of Delft in the Netherlands, as a cheaper alternative to Chinese porcelain.

During the Dutch Golden Age the Dutch East India Company imported millions of pieces of Chinese porcelain in the early 17th century, which only the wealthiest could afford.

Eventually the Dutch potters invented a white tin glaze, which imitated porcelain, which in turn was decorated with a cobalt oxide, producing a wonderful fresh blue. It was as hugely popular then as it is today.
