OVERVIEW

This pretty pair of Dutch faïence chambersticks was made in the city of Delft in the Netherlands by the firm of de Porceleyne Fles. Hand made of pure white pottery and hand painted with cobalt striping and floral motifs in cobalt, loden green, golden yellow and brick red, the look is reminiscent of another famous faïence, from Quimper, France. Chambersticks have handles, of course, so they can be safely carried from room to room and up to bed.


The maker's marks are painted in blue on the bottoms. The standard ones include:
A stylized drawing of a bottle (From the Dutch, "de Porceleyne Fles" translates to "the porcelain bottle")
The conjoined initials JT for Joost Thooft, who restored and owned De Porceleyne Fles from 1876 to 1884
Delft---the city of manufacture and the generic term for the pottery made there
Each chamberstick was painted by a different artist (their initials are on the bottom left); the item number of P.058 is on the bottom center and the letter code "DF" indicates the year 1986.
Delftware from this company is also called "Royal Delft," since they were granted their royal warrant in 1919.

This pair is so pristine and apparently unused (except for our photo session) that they retain the original half-round silver and blue foil De Porceleyne Fles labels. There are no chips, cracks, burn marks or wax residue. Each candleholder measures 4 3/4 inches tall, has a 3 1/4 inch diameter round base and a candle cup that is 7/8 inches across. They're beautifully decorative and work so well with folk painted pottery from other countries.
