Delft pottery dates back to the 16th century and first was produced in Delft. Over time, this earthenware became an easier-to-obtain option than real Chinese porcelain and quickly became sought-after with wealthy Dutch people. From The Hague, take a 5-minute train ride to Rijswijk (Delft Noord) and meet your guide for a tour of the Delftse Pauw factory — one of the few remaining that carries on the tradition of making the beloved hand-painted pottery.
Gain insight into how this pottery is made and watch where the pieces are painted by hand to create the classic blue-and-white designs. Then gaze at the final product in the showroom, which displays an array of Delft pottery.
As a treat on this tour, take home your own authentic Delft piece, a perfect souvenir. Plus, enjoy discounts on any additional items you may like to purchase. If you like, you can arrange to have items shipped to your home (own expense).
