Product Description

It is my pleasure to offer you this handpainted Delft TILE produced by WESTRAVEN.

Westraven was established in 1661 as a tile factory near Utrecht in the heart of The Netherlands (The medieval 7 Provinces). There was a high demand of roof tiles because of the many fires in town and a new law requiring roofs had to be covered with tiles in stead of wood. Many years later the factory adds floor and wall tiles to its collection.

From 1906 - 1908 they produced Art Earthenware under the name "Pottery Rembrandt Utrecht" and since 1926 pots and vases a.o. designed by Chris Agterberg and religious cloisonné tiles (by Charles Eyck) in the same technique as The Porceleyne Fles. From the fifties Westraven continued to contract reknowned designers for their ceramic objects (Helly Oestreicher, Hans de Jong).

In 1985 Westraven was converted into a full subsidiary of The Royal Porceleyne Fles in Delft. Besides its own collection, Westraven started producing appliques, candy dishes, serving trays and plates. Where Royal Delft items all are fully handpainted, Westraven articles are screen-printed: the decoration is baked onto the product by means of a transfer. During the firing process it melts into the glaze. Their production process is second to none which results in a very high quality Delft product.

In 1994 Westraven moved to Delft, where its production was integrated into the production of Royal Delft.

This 100% handpainted tile is marked at the back with WR and an imprinted "Holland".
