Question: How do you identify Delft blue pottery?

Delft Markings Today markings on the bottom of Delft pieces will often say “hand-painted in Holland” along with any number of variations of the phrase “Deflt blue” in either Dutch or English. However, many modern pieces are not hand-painted at all, but are instead made by transfer and stamp.

What are the signature colours of Delft pottery?

Most of it is blue and white pottery, and the city of Delft in the Netherlands was the major centre of production, but the term covers wares with other colours, and made elsewhere.

Is Delft always blue?

Dutch delftware is not always blue and white And later Delftware was sometimes painted in several colours. The tin glaze of this tea canister is completely black, instead of the usual white colour, and has been decorated with several other colours. Black Delftware is the rarest earthenware that was made in Delft.
