Delft Bird Ornament
After many fruitless attempts to replicate the pure white used in Chinese porcelain, in the early 1600s, Holland became the first European country to eventually discover that the addition of tin would produce ceramics with a true white background. That discovery occurred in Delft — a town in the Netherlands. We know from inventories taken at their deaths, several of the Pilgrims owned delft dishes.
Hand-painted in traditional blue and white, our little Delft Bird Ornament adds a cheerful touch to your tree and also makes a great gift.
