Description Technical Specs Mural Installation Guide
 
A "Bounty of Blue and White." As soon as European countries set up trading routes in the 17th centry, blue and white porcelains exported from China to the West prompted a fervor for blue and white ceramics. Arduous sea journeys made Chinese export porcelains expensive, so industrious potters on the Continent and in England emulated the look using local pottery wares. Called "delft" after a town in Holland where it was made, it was also produced widely in Britain. This blue and white pottery was the primary ceramic ware used in Great Britain and her colonies in the first half of the 18th century.

Colonial Williamsburg has a superb collection of 17th and 18th century British delft ware. Paul Montgomery has captured the look of these priceless antique vases, flower bricks, punch bowls, and more. Enjoy a fabulous cabinet of antique blue and white wares from China and England without the cost of collecting--or fear of breakage!
