Dutch Delftware played a pivotal role in the development of European ceramics in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The robust faience center of Delft was the result of two important currents of the time: the Italian production of majolica and the Chinese and Japanese wares that were imported by the Dutch East India Company. Through the influence of Queen Mary, the taste for painted Delftware spread rapidly through a wealthy European elite.
