Delft

Dutch tin-glazed earthenware named after the town of Delft, the main production area, from the 16th century onwards. Similar pottery made in England from the late 16th century is also termed delft or "English delftware".

During the 'late Ming dynasty' period, the influences went both ways while the Dutch copying the Chinese on their tin-glazed earthenware, and the Chinese copying the Dutch decorations on porcelain.
