Tin-Glazed Earthenware from the Netherlands, France and Germany, 1600–1800

Designmuseum Denmark is home to a large collection of ceramic works that is quite unique in terms of size and width of representation, since the collection covers all known techniques within the main groups of earthenware, stoneware, tin-glazed earthenware, and porcelain as well as new hybrid materials and techniques. This catalogue covers an extremely important period in the history of European glazed ceramic ware from c. 1600 to 1800 when the technique enjoyed the widest distribution. Ulla Houkjær focuses on three central areas: the Netherlands, France, and Germany. This comprehensive and highly illustrated introduction to the history of tin-glazed earthenware in these three countries offers an overview of the history of important developments within the field during the period and highlights important changes in aesthetics and usage.
