Delfts Blue

Delfts Blue salt & pepper shakersDelfts Blue salt and pepper shakers
made in The Netherlands 1960s

I don’t know much about Delfts Blue or the mad keen community that collects it, but when I saw this pair of salt and pepper shakers- hand painted, with DB marked on the base, I snapped them up.

This is souvenirware from the 60s- I found through research- made in The Netherlands. The shakers, made to resemble a traditionally dressed Dutch man & woman, also came in windmills, clogs, tulips and other stereotypical Dutch garb. They are quite crudely made and painted but I gather that is part of their vintage charm.

The shakers come with their original stoppers, and look never to have been used- they are in excellent condition. And they are for sale: $AUD45
