Description - Royal Delft by Rick Erickson

Ceramic Delftware has never been more popular or collectible. This important book documents the world's most famous and oldest surviving Dutch Delftware factory, De Porceleyne Fles (Royal Delft), which dates back to 1653. Publication of this volume coincides with the 350th Jubilee celebrations of the factory in 2003. Beautiful plates, vases, covered pots, candlesticks, clocks, tableware, tiles, and watering cans are all here, from inexpensive pieces to breathtaking artwork worth tens of thousands. Over 650 colour photographs show the distinctive quality and over 100 archival black and white photos are largely drawn from factory sales catalogues. Rick Erickson provides a wealth of detail to attract and teach the novice enthusiast while also inspiring the knowledgeable veteran collector. This important reference includes guides to original and current prices, rarity, factory marks, year codes, and painter's signatures.
