Delft Blue and White Pottery

Arts and Crafts

Delft blue and white pottery is made in and around Delft, a town in the Netherlands that is known for its miniature blue and white pottery houses. These iconic houses became popular when KLM, a Dutch airline, presented their business class travellers with them as souvenirs in 1952. They eventually became a collectors item there are 96 different types of houses, each with a number, and people would aim to collect all 96. Eventually, KLM changed these houses into containers and served drinks in them with a cork on the chimney. These are still served to passengers.
