"Tiles form an important part of the great Dutch tradition of tin-glazed earthenware, internationally renowned as 'Delftware'. The presence of the right raw materials and know-how as well as a sufficiently large clientele allowed tile production to reach an impressive scale in the provinces of Holland, Friesland and Utrecht. In this way the Netherlands wrote its own fascinating chapter in the world history of tiles. In this publication the Foundation of Friends of the Dutch Tile Museum in Otterlo present tiles and tile pictures from the Friends' collections. The catalogue gives a detailed description of all the items illustrated. Supplemented by a number if examples from museum collections, a canon of approximately four hundred years of Dutch tile culture is thus created and also opened up to an international audience."--Book jacket.
