Not Delftware
Medium size bowl with floral decor 2 December 2023

Verdict:

  • Not Delftware

Analysis:

  • Not made in Delft The term Delftware is only used for earthenware actually produced in Delft. Read more
  • More recent production technique After 1850, factories in and outside Holland developed more efficient and cheaper production techniques. This goes beyond the scope of this website. Read more
  • Forged mark In the 19th century, a financial incentive arose to sell more new earthenware as antique Delftware, sometimes even bearing forged Delft factory marks. Read more

Indeed, as top-user Franky already correctly indicated, this is not original Delftware. The mark is imitated from earlier objects, but this was not made in Delft.

Sadly 'Delft Blue' (or similar) was never protected and we therefore see anything, even Delft Blue made in China. This is not China however, but it is most probably also not made in Delft. Although I don't recognise the mark, it looks to be made in another Dutch city.

Pot met oren en deksel5 December 2023

Verdict:

  • Delftware

Analysis:

  • Delftware, made between 1620 – 1850 Only tin-glazed earthenware made in Delft between 1620 - 1850 is referred to as traditional Delftware. Read more
  • Tin-glazed earthenware Earthenware with a glaze to which tin oxide has been added to make it opaque white. Delftware produced before 1850 is always covered with a tin glaze. Read more
  • Hand-painted An important characteristic of authentic Delftware is that it is hand-painted. Printing techniques do not occur on this earthenware. Read more
  • Unmarked An unmarked object does not necessarily mean that it is not Delftware. Only about 1/3 of all Delftware is marked. Read more

Vanaf de foto's beoordeeld een leuke 18e eeuwse Delftse boterpot met deksel. Hier werd boter in bewaard. Bijzonder met deze geblokte decoratie.

Gebruiksaardewerk uit de 19e eeuw. Dat is natuurlijk een vrij ruime datering, maar heel veel nauwkeuriger kunnen we het niet maken.

Moeilijk te zeggen waar dit is gemaakt. Dit materiaal werd ook geproduceerd in de landen om ons heen. Welke tijd? Ergens tussen 1780 en 1900 zou ik zeggen...

Nou, het lijkt me duidelijk. Dank aan de bijdrage van alle topgebruikers! Het is toch wel een zeldzaam objectje. Grappig dat nou net ik 'm beschrijf hier, zoals wij ook tijdens de opnames van Tussen Kunst & Kitsch hebben besproken, een keurig 18e eeuws papkommetje.

Although I also not entirely sure about the history of DAIC, it is as Franky stated, not original Delftware.

Ik moest er iets mee Jan en heb het 'niet vast te stellen' genoemd. Zou het niet Gouda, Arnhem of Schoonhoven zijn? Altijd leuk dit grijze gebied...

It looks like this was made at Siegersdorfer Werke in the city of Siegersdorf, Germany. Although the factory started production in 1870, this is probably more 1900-20. It was a big factory producing decorative wares, employing around 2000 people in the year 1928.

Keurig laat-18e eeuws Delfts pannenkoek bordje. Dit soort borden werden gebruikt al decoratie en stonden vaak op richeltjes boven ramen of deuren.
