Delft tiles 17th Century/18th Century

The Delft potters from the Netherlands made tiles in vast numbers (estimated at eight hundred million) over a period of two hundred years; many Dutch houses still have tiles that were fixed in the 17th and 18th centuries. Delftware became popular and was widely exported in Europe and even reached China and Japan. Chinese and Japanese potters made porcelain versions of Delftware for export to Europe. This collection of Delft tiles is presented at the Casa-Museu Frederico de Freitas (Funchal,Madeira).
