Dating dutch delft tiles

A "crown" mark is not an indicator of "royal" delft.

For obvious reasons, there are significantly more Delftware traders in the city than in Amsterdam — many of which are still attached to active pottery workshops.

With artifacts dating from the 17th to the 19th centuries, these collections include excellent pieces of Delft earthernware.

These wonderful, blue items are mostly handcrafted and Jorrit Heinen stocks a large quota of authentic Royal Delft pottery.

This type of ceramics is highly prized by collectors, due to its historical significance and association with traditional Dutch design.

You will also find that quite a bit of Royal Delft is sold, for a number of reasons: It is the factory most tourists visit, it is generally regarded as the finest quality, and they have had the best system for marking and dating their pieces for the longest time.

Their pieces are clearly marked with a date-code back to 1879.

Apart from authentic pottery, this showroom also allows guest to watch craftspeople at work and offers a short audio-visual guide covering the origins and history of Delftware.
