Rarity of "gilded motifs" in the production of Delft earthenware

Perhaps considered to be one of the most beautiful designs in Delft, the "Delft gilded" motif inspired by the "imari" palette of Japanese porcelain in blue, iron red and gold, was an undeniable success throughout Europe from the beginning of the 18th century, due to the refinement and finesse of its decorations. The white background of this earthenware, reminiscent of the "nigoshide" white of Kakiemon porcelain, and the overglaze technique similar to porcelain, was above all the prerogative of Pieter Adriaen Kocks' Manufacture de l'A grec from the end of the 17th century.
