Published in conjunction with a an updated exhibition of Dutch ceramics, both new and old, at the Municipal Museum of The Hague, this catalogue provides an overview of the history of delftware. In addition, it explores subjects such as the display of delftware in period homes, stock inventories of 17th-century retailers, the unique forms of tulip vases and the production and sale of delftware today. Comprehensive, beautifully illustrated and photographed, and with detailed texts throughout, it is a must-have for fans and collectors alike.
