Dutch Delftware is super-duper beautiful. The Delft tiles are blue and white with windmills and tulips and fishing boats on them! Our kitchen has lots of them all over. They make you happy when you cook! – FREDERICK & SOPHIE
Sandwiched between the port of Rotterdam and the coastal city of The Hague, Delft is a relatively small town in The Netherlands. In the seventeenth century, at the height of the Dutch Golden Age, it was brimming with importance. Potters around the Netherlands had already begun developing the art of tin-glazed earthenware to mimic the glossy white surface of porcelain, but in the 1640s and 50s it was Delft potters who started to use personal monograms and factory marks, and the glazed tiles became works of art in their own right. Appealing to the aristocracy and the wealthy middle class, the tiles covered bathrooms, swimming pools, and kitchens in some of the great European Houses, including the Chateau de Rambouillet in Île-de-France, once owned by Louis XVI, and the Schloss Nymphenburg in Munich. In their characteristic blue and white, with elaborately painted scenes from Dutch life – farm workers, windmills, tulips and sailing ships taken from the local landscape, Delft-tiles are as distinctive and beautiful as ever. This exceptional wooden Delft Blue play kitchen by Dutch toy brand New Classic Toys was inspired by the 400-year-old tradition of Delftware. Shaped as a Dutch canal house in Renaissance style, a stepped gable crowns the kitchen.
