Dutch Dawn Tableware Collection

Dutch Dawn Tableware Collection

Royal Delft introduces its latest tableware based on the age-old tradition of painting landscapes. The Dutch Dawn Tableware Collection from Royal Delft brings the mysticism of the Dutch landscape to the dining table in the morning. Inspired by the unique atmosphere in all seasons, the tableware reflects the enchanting, calm start to the day. A combination of iconic Delft Blue and white tone-on-tone decorations makes Dutch Dawn a modern classic tableware to add a bit of mysticism to the laid table.

The design | The centuries-old tradition of painting landscapes

The 10-piece Dutch Dawn tableware is a beautiful Delft Blue work of art as a whole. Each item represents its own unique part of the landscape. While nature takes center stage on the dinner plate and the pasta plate, the urban part of the landscape painting can be seen on the dessert plate and the mug is embraced by the dew in the grassy landscape. The erasure of the landscape gives space to the chef’s creativity, in combination with the tone-on-tone decoration on the base plate and the large bowl, emphasizes the mystique surrounding the Dutch mornings.

“Inspired by the landscape paintings of Frytom, one of the master painters of Royal Delft painted a beautiful tile plate. This tile plate served as the basis for the design of our tableware. We deliberately left the mirror of the plates open, so that the chef’s creation could be fully appreciated. comes into its own and can be embraced by the Delft Blue painting.”

– Joffrey Walonker, designmanager Royal Delft

A white tone-sur-tone decoration

This item fits perfectly with the rest of the collection and the underplate provides an elegant start to the table setting. The large bowl contributes to a balanced table setting due to its white tone-on-tone decoration. The artisanal quality of this unique piece, as well as the other items in the collection, guarantees long-lasting pleasure and the ability to cover many tables in style.

Van Ruisdael tot Frytom exhibition

In 2023, Royal Delft Museum presented a never-before-seen exhibition: From Ruisdael to Frytom. Two great names from 17th-century landscape painting were central here. Both Jacob van Ruisdael and Frederik van Frytom each shaped the artistic Dutch landscape in their own way, on canvas and on Delft pottery. Both painters lived during the founding of the Porceleyne Fles, with Van Ruisdael working mainly on canvas and Van Frytom using his brush for Delft Blue works of art.

Van Frytom is one of the Netherlands’ most famous Delft pottery painters from the 17th century and worked for a while at the Porceleyne Fles. He mainly painted plaques, dishes and plates, on which the decoration always depicted a landscape. Van Frytom painted many Delft landscapes, often leaving large areas undecorated, emphasizing the depth and suggestion of light in his serene, rural paintings.
