During the 17th century the Dutch became the maritime and economic power in the world. When (and if) they returned home safely from their trips overseas, they brought back thousands of exotic and exciting new products, including Chinese porcelain.
It did not take long before Chinese products became an absolute trend among the Dutch. The decorations and patterns that were found on porcelain, led to new inspiration and stunning combinations of different styles, eventually resulting in tiles like this one.
This Delft tile was made somewhere between 1620 – 1650 and is decorated with a so called Wan-Li corner pattern.
