Delft faience was produced in thirty different potteries for more than two centuries. Tens of thousands of men and women worked in Delft on a product with European appeal. A broad cross-section of the Dutch population bought it, but the best was reserved for the elite of Europe. Delftware added colour and lustre to any interior.
This book describes the factories, the people, their successes and their disappointments, and the beautifully decorated wares they produced. The pieces selected for the full-colour illustrations, over hundred and fifty of them, come from the Rijksmuseum's delftware collection, which is the finest in the Netherlands.
