Originating in the Netherlands, antique blue and white Delftware ceramics look wonderful grouped together, whether you display a collection of vases and ginger jars on a sideboard or decorative antique Delft plates on a wall.

Blue and White Ceramic

The blue and white ceramic look has been a classic in home decor since the early 1600s when porcelain from China became popular in Europe. When the fall of the Ming Dynasty interrupted Chinese imports, entrepreneurial potters in the town of Delft in Holland began making pieces that imitated the Chinese porcelains. They used the tin-glaze technique employed by Italians to create Majolica, and their hand-painted creations became known as Delftware ceramics. Dutch details such as windmills and canals are typical, as are scenes of people skating or enjoying a wedding feast.

Polychrome Decor

The potters also made polychrome pieces – meaning multi-colored – with rich shades of yellow, dark red, orange, green, purple and brown as well as the famous blue and white. Most designs are ornate and while some are purely European in style, others have an Eastern influence which makes them a terrific choice if you are trying to add a touch of exotic color to your space.
