Delftware, introduced into Britain by Flemish potters, hence the term, in the later part of the 16th century, is a pottery made of porous clay covered by a lead glaze made opaque by the addition of tin oxide and decorated with colours capable of withstanding high firing temperatures. Hand decorated with anything from elaborate biblical scenes to simple patterns, it was used primarily for domestic use but also for display purposes.

 

One of the very first potteries established on the Southbank of the Thames was Pickleherring Pottery, a name which stuck!

 

Marketed to the well off, professionals, merchants and those entitled to bear arms, British Delftware was exported to the West Indies, North America and Europe. Today it is perhaps the most highly sought after type of antique British pottery and represents a major investment which will bring pleasure and joy for generations to come.
