About Delft Tiles
Royal Delft tiles are decorated in a variety of motifs. Windmill landscapes, ships, flower baskets, and assorted floral patterns all showcase the wonderful artistry. Delft blue plates are  a type of tin-glazed earthenware pottery made in Delft, Netherlands.  They are part of the blue and white pottery family, which is inspired by 14th-century Chinese porcelain. Delft blue plates are made from composite clays that are painted and glazed. The paint is made from cobalt oxide, which turns black during the baking process and then blue after firing. The amount of water used in the paint determines the shade of blue, with more water producing a lighter blue and less water producing a darker blue.
