Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Delftware
Delftware, according to several internet sources, is a blue and white earthenware pottery originating in Delft, Holand. Although I have seen it in antique shops, I was not aware that it includes so more than dishes. In my search to define Delftware, I found a variety of items made in this style: Christmas ornaments, kitchen and bath tiles, decorative items, wedding gifts, children's piggy banks and handpainted items. If you like Delftware items, you can find a huge selection online. All of the items on this post can be found at Nelis' Dutch Village of Holland, Michigan. This company imports the items directly from The Netherlands and carries a huge variety of Delftware, Dutch foods and coffees, souvenirs, and cuckoo clocks.
