Discover the world of Delft Blue

Paintbrushes carefully touch the white earthenware, whilst elsewhere clay is poured into handmade moulds. In this pottery, craftsmen have been creating iconic Delft Blue for almost 400 years. Royal Delft, established in 1653, is the last remaining original Delftware factory in Delft from the 17th century that still produces hand painted Delft Blue according to centuries-old tradition. Besides a visit to the factory you get to see our museum with an extensive collection of historic and modern pieces. Discover the history, craftsmanship and innovation of this royal museum during your visit.

Ontmoet de makers van Delfts Blauw

Van Ruisdael tot Frytom

November 8th 2022 until the 15th of March 2023

Never shown together before: works by the 17th-century Dutch landscape painters Van Ruisdael and Van Frytom on canvas and pottery. Van Frytom also painted on canvas, but could Van Ruisdael have done this on pottery as well? Is it 17th-century craftsmanship or art?

The composition of the exhibited pieces is unique and comes to Delft from (inter)national private collectors and museums for an exclusive period from 8 Nov 2022 to 15 March 2023.
