Royal Delftware

Hand Painted
The Royal Dutch Delftware Manufactory "De Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles/Royal Delft” established in 1653, is the last remaining Delftware factory from the 17th century. Here, the world renowned Royal Delftware is still entirely hand painted according to centuries-old tradition.

  1. My Dutch friend has used Delft tiles in her kitchen and it's stunning. There's something about blue and white patterns.
