Inspired by the 17th century and driven by the desire to give the Delft Blue that Royal Delft has created since the 17th century a contemporary look & feel, Royal Delft presents: Proud Mary. Proud Mary is composed of four seperate elements, the skirt, body, the collar and the head. These larger Mary’s are handpainted by craftsmen at Royal Delft. Proud Mary Landscape is an ode to the Dutch landscape and even more specific to the Delft landscape. It depicts the city of Delft in the 17th century.
