This handsome model brings to life the exquisite detail that made Delft blue pottery famous!
Delft, a small city nestled between Rotterdam and The Hague in the Netherlands, made a name for itself in the early 17th century by becoming the leader in blue and white pottery production. Though this pottery was not genuine porcelain, it’s popularity was unrivaled in Europe between 1600 and 1800. At its peak, 33 pottery factories existed in the small city and one, which opened in 1653, still produces this stunning, hand-painted art to this day.
To commemorate this fun piece of art history, we’ve created Delft on Mindy Berg’s Morgan stallion, mold # 667, for our Freedom Series Limited Edition decorator model. The barrel of this striking blue and white resist splatter dapple decorator features a vintage-inspired horse and driver done in dark blue, reminiscent of the finely-detailed pastoral scenes found on vases, platters, and tiles that made Delft famous.
All BreyerFest ticket holders will have access to purchase this piece, whether you’re joining us in-person or online.
