I saw the panels made in Delft, the Netherlands at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. These panels were made of painted tiles.
The Delft factories specialized in making painted tiles, combining with functional wares.
Groups of panel were ordered to decorate the walls of European Royal residences such as near Paris and near Munich.
Here are tin-glazed earthenware painted tiles 'The panel with vase of flowers', Netherlands, 1710-1750
The stages in making delftware were briefly as follows: clay was shaped, dried and given a first firing. Tiles were then glazed with liquid white tin glaze. The design was pricked through on a piece of paper, the spons,and when laid on the tile, the pattern was transferred to the tile by pouncing through the holes with charcoal. The outline of the pattern was clear enough for the painter to complete the painting.
This is another painted tile panel 'The vase with flowers', we see here a lot of flowers: bluebells, dahlias, roses, lilies. The decorative vase is placed on a stand. I show you a detail of this panel:
Did you like these painted tiles? perhaps you have any panels at home. What are they?
