Vase (Netherlands), ca. 1700
Among the most prized items brought back in trade by the Dutch East India Company in the 17th century was Chinese blue-and-white porcelain. Quick to try to replicate the look, the town of Delft had so many factories that specialized in blue-and-white earthenware that the resulting production became known as Delftware.
