I like the rooster and hen delft pieces.....
Yes, I often hear on Antiques Roadshow that even hundreds of years ago porcelain and china was made to look like it was from various countries, and shipped all around the world! It must have been profitable, to ship such heavy things that were so easily broken.
There is still Delftware painted by hand, but I would think none of that can be found in this souvenir store(s). It would be too expensive. If you have real Delftware that IS painted by hand it should be written on it.I just remember many years ago my father was a member of the "one dollar a day club". Don't no anymore how it worked, but I do remember there was an American older Lady, she visited Holland and our home and my father accompanied her to Delft. She wanted to buy Delftware in a souvenir store and she asked the salesman if it were original Delft Blue...Yes ..said the man....but softly my father heard him say....this piece probably has seen Delft for the first time today....(it was made in China!)It's long long ago....I was a young girl and my dad died in October 1988....but I think it still goes for today!
I wonder how much Delftware is still being painted by hand? Love the blue, in fact I just bought yarn today called Delft. :)
