Five things to remember while enjoying Delftware

Dutch Delftware is initially a result of the first connection between the Dutch East India traders (VOC) and China. Initiated by the demand for the waning importation of Oriental porcelain from the 1640s, Delftware quickly became an iconic national product.

From the 1680s the Delftware industry 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. Fifth generation specialist Robert Aronson takes you past several objects and discusses five things to remember when looking at Delftware.
