Imari Robins – Piet Design
The best known Dutch earthenware is Delftware. This was produced to imitate the blue and white porcelain from China that the Dutch East India Company brought to Holland in the 17th century.
Around 1700 a different type of porcelain appeared on the Dutch market: Imari form Japan. Its colourful combination of blue, red and gold made it instantly popular. Delft potteries responded immediately to this new demand, producing decorative objects in the same colours.
These robins are easy to build. No scissors or glue needed.
