The Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles is the only remaining factory of the 32 earthenware factories that were established in Delft during the 17th century. It is known for its Delftware production, which has been active for more than 350 years, without interruption.
Delft Blue started in the Netherlands around the 17th century when the VOC brought the blue painted porcelain back from China. This resulted in an inspiration for the Dutch ceramists, because this fragile porcelain was not created or seen before.
