Monday, Tuesday.

 

These last weeks before Christmas are always so busy, at least for me. So less posting than usual , but I don’t want to miss the Monday memes.  I found photo’s of Royal Delft in my files so I thought I might show these again. As you can see Royal Delft does not only make blue ceramics.

2-deflt blauw 076

 

This is one of their most famous designs. This monumental tulip holder is 48 inches high and so  beautiful. The photo is not that good as the vase was behind glass.

Of course there are many different pots and vases and as you can see also in yellow.

This ceramic tile plateau is made after that  famous painting from Rembrandt “de Nachtwacht”

And these days they also have very modern ceramics as shown here . Nice and colorful.

Zooo lieve Rietje, dat tegelplateau van de nachtwacht is wel heel bijzonder en erg mooi weergegeven.

Wat een gigantische bouwwerken al
die mooie vazen. Opgemaakt met
bloemen zal het een streling zijn voor het oog.

Mooi ook de moderne kunst, inderdaad zeer kleurrijk.....

Wens je een fijne week toe,

Liefs,
Josephine

Great captures, Riet! When we were at the Delft blue factory, they also had red china ware - I liked that better than the modern designs.

Vroeger vond ik Delfts blauw afschuwelijk, maar nu waardeer ik het wel en zie het vakmanschap ervan. Vreemd dat je smaak zo kan veranderen.

The Delft blue is unmistakable. I would love to see tulips displayed in the tulip holder. It must be magnificent. Valerie
