Where does Delft blue come from
Although it sounds very Dutch, the name Delftsblauw is inspired by a different culture. In the 16th century Chinese porcelain was first introduced by the Portuguese. This was very expensive to produce and many people could not afford that. That is why an alternative variant was made. Red earthenware was painted with white paint and blue images were applied to it. This looked like Chinese porcelain but it was a lot more affordable. In the beginning it still had a real Eastern look and later more and more Dutch images were made on it.
Collect the different mills
It is very nice to have all the different options for the cute mills. Although these are all Delftware, they do not immediately resemble each other. You can display them on a window sill or in a cupboard. You can also use a number of products in everyday life such as a pepper and salt set or a tealight holder. There are also mills that are purely decorative and you can display them nicely.
