There are two periods of Dutch pottery that are sought after today, Delftware and Gouda. Delftware, or Delft pottery, is blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in the Netherlands and the tin-glazed pottery made in the Netherlands from the 16th century.
Delftware in the latter sense is a type of pottery in which a white glaze is applied, usually decorated with metal oxides. Delftware includes pottery objects of all descriptions including plates, ornaments and tiles. The distinctive blue and white decoration sets this style apart.
Gouda is a style of Dutch pottery named after the city of Gouda. Gouda pottery gained worldwide prominence in the early 20th century and remains highly desirable to collectors today. Gouda pottery is diverse and visually distinctive in appearance, typically illustrated with colourful and highly decorated Art Nouveau or Art Deco designs.
In Something Special you'll find exquisite pieces in both styles that will take you back to the canals of Old Amsterdam. They make excellent gifts for those who love this style of pottery. Delft or Gouda ceramics make a distinct design statement. Collectors will find an interesting assortment of pieces to choose from our collection.
