This is because the Netherlands doesn't have strict laws about "Country of Origin" labeling as we do here in the States.

We are used to seeing products marked "Made In China", and we accept it for the low prices they bring, but in Holland, the stuff made in China is often sitting on the shelf right next to the pieces that are the true blue delftware, with no distinction whatsoever.

The book has many pictures and illustrations of marks to use for comparison purposes.

It may even help you see the value in the pieces yourself, and you may not even want to sell!

Our suggestion is that if you can get a copy of the book, read up on delftware and get familiar with your pieces.

A mark on the bottom of the piece can be misleading *at best*.

We receive many, many inquiries to help people identify and value their delftware. They have both been created in recent years - the book, "Discovering Dutch Delftware" by Dr.

We needed two things to really do a good job of identifying and valuing delftware: 1) a good book to identify marks, and 2) a vibrant marketplace to set realistic prices.

The old adage "something is only worth what someone will pay for it," is definitely true with delftware.
