It is my pleasure to offer you this pristine Royal Delft XXX produced by De 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 and started to use other colors like red and green.
In 1910 the production of NEW DELFTS was lounched. As the name suggests, it was a completely new product in terms of decoration and manufacture, inspired by ancient Persian and Islamic ceramics. It The dark-firing clay was first coated with a white engobe layer upon which the abstract decoration in black was applied and then the object was covered with an opaque glaze.
The decorations were designed by Leon Senf who had been inspired for this series by Persian pots dating from the 12th and 13th centuries.
The company was forced to cease production in mid 30ties because due to the threat of WWII raw materials were no longer available. New Delft is still not produced today for various reasons although several attempts to restart production have been made in the fifties.
This marvellous vase shows 2 birds and is marked on the bottom with the Royal Delft Logo that was used on special products and "DELFT". This facory mark appeared in 1910 and has been used for special art-pottery ever since.
