From the 1680s the Delftware industry has constantly innovated with new shapes, decorations and functions. Their products were coveted by European nobility and royalty for their quality and diversity. The city of Delft rapidly became an inspiration to many European and even Oriental potters.

Delftware has been a national symbol of Holland for almost 400 years. Initiated by the demand for the waning importation of Oriental porcelain from the 1640s, Delftware quickly became an iconic national product and one of the greatest Dutch achievements.

COLLECTION

OBJECT OF THE MONTH

Blue and White Small Bowl

Every month we present a special object from the Aronson Antiquairs’ collection. This month we would like to show you one of the hidden gems of this year’s collection: a blue and white small bowl. This early bowl, made around 1670, is painted around the exterior with three medallions decorated with chinoiserie scenes of men seated in a landscape of shrubbery and rocks. These medallions are alternated by interstices pierced with a flowerhead in a roundel.  Early Dutch Delftware bowls are rare, and a bowl with pierced openwork of this early date is even more uncommon. The bowl can be attributed to a group of faience that is decorated with chinoiserie scenes of figures seated in a landscape of rock work and trees and was manufactured between 1660 and 1680. Although the majority of these objects consists of chargers and jars, there are also a few bowls in this group.…

DISCOVER

Dutch Delftware

Dutch Delftware played a pivotal role in the development of European ceramics in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The robust faience center of Delft was the result of two important currents of the time: the Italian production of majolica and the Chinese and Japanese wares that were imported by the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Through the influence of Queen Mary, the taste for painted Delftware spread rapidly through a wealthy European elite. Because of its remarkable diversity of shapes, the delicacy of the decoration and the gaiety of its colors, Dutch Delftware became the source of inspiration for many ceramic centers throughout Europe, which endeavored to work in the Delft style (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.
