Delftware is a type of earthenware traditionally decorated with a blue and white glaze. It was first made early in the 17th century at Delft.

At the peak of the Delftware history, there were about 32 workshops in Delft. The most famous one still left today, is the Porceleyne Fles. At the Royal Porceleyne Fles, you can see how Delftware is made by hand.
