Royal Tichelaar Makkum Pottery Fruit Strainer with Underplate, hand painted with great expertise. Extremely rare to find, this is a decorative two part set, used to strain or "drain" fruit such as berries. Royal Tichelaar Makkum, a family business passed on from father to son for over four centuries, used yellow clay found in the province of Friesland, hand painted tin glazes decorate each early earthenware piece. The special character of the Tichelaar Makkum earthenware was produced by their unique, secret tin glaze, giving each hand made piece its gloss and brilliance.

Avidly collected, each antique and vintage piece is a true luxurious treasure, valued on par with truly fantastic Delft, there are collectors who prize this much higher than the Delft Blue due to the vibrant colors and higher skill level of Makkum painters. There are a few edge chips as is to be expected of an early piece meant to be used in a home for fruit, nothing major. Display this with your antique Delft, your Flow Blue, and your other Blue & White decorative antique plates.

  • Measures 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 1"H {underplate};6-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 1-1/2"h {strainer}.
