Passion for Dutch Delftware
When Chinese porcelain was introduced in Europe around 1600 it ignited the production of ceramics in the Dutch city of Delft. Rapidly the most skilful Delft factories, such as De Grieksche A, De Paeuw or De Porceleyne Fles, led the production and decoration of Delft faience to such a degree of perfection that its success spread around the entire European continent and even back to China (history).
Since 1881 and over five generations Aronson Antiquairs has shared the passion for Dutch Delftware with private collectors and museum and corporate curators around the world. The Aronson family members have strived to gain and maintain the confidence of its clientele to collect the finest Delftware available.
