Delftse Pauw Tours

The Delftware tin-glazed pottery technique has been used since the 17th century, and has not changed much since (which could partly explain its popularity nowadays) – each piece requires the craftsmanship of a master painter to produce the very specific look this pottery is known for. The specific blue hue used on the Delftware pottery is instantly recognizable and has become somewhat of a trademark in its own right in many countries around the world.

The showroom and mini-museum showcases a wide range of authentic Delftware, which are always entirely hand-painted, in an authentic Dutch building overlooking a canal.

Practical Info

Delftse Pauw is located at Delftweg 133 in The Hague, and can be reached in less than an hour by car from Amsterdam via route A4.
