Product Description

It is my pleasure to offer you this handpainted plate produced by The Royal Porceleyne Fles in Delft.

De Porceleyne Fles was founded in 1653 however it got famous when Joost Thooft took over this small factory at Delft in 1876. He produced traditional blue on white Delft ware and tile tableaus but with a new technique.

The painters of Royal Delft are trained in the factory starting off with simple designs in blue/white on the smaller pieces. A painter first has to learn how to paint the little flowers and leaves that so characteristically adorn Delftware vases and the borders of Delftware plates. The painters then gradually progress to larger pieces with more complicated designs. Only the master painters, who have trained at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague paint the elaborate landscape and Dutch masters pieces.

This is such a professionally painted wall plate showing a floral design in many shades of blue.

Fully marked on the bottom with the yearmark CT (=1974), the Royal Delft Logo, The stylized JT of Joost Thooft and the painters initials AMO (= Miss A.J.A. Mol, who worked for the Fles from 1964 until recently when she retired !!).
