Grote ronde tegelplaat De Porceleyne Fles schilder Leon Senf

Large Antique Round Plaque ROYAL DELFT De Porceleyne Fles painter Leon Senf

The picture is AFTER a painting of Johannes Albert Neuhuys, (Utrecht, 10 juni 1844 – Locarno (Zwitserland), 6 februari 1914) who was the best known artist of the Laren school (closely related to the Hague school).

This Plaque Plaque was created in Delft at the only faience factory that still remains from 17th Century:
De Porceleyne Fles or ROYAL DELFT!

(After the appointment of director Thooft in 1876, it was, through technical improvements, possible from around 1880 to make excellent refined pottery paintings in Delft blue at the Porceleyne Fles. For this works by famous old masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Jan van Eyck next to works of contemporary painters such as Cornelis Springer (1817-1891) and Gerke Henkes (1844-1927) were used. Around 1878 the first contacts were made with painters from the Hague School through Adolf le Comte, the brother-in-law of Anton Mauve (1838-1888). The first artists who delivered (i.e. floral-) designs to De Porceleyne Fles were, among others, C. Bisschop, J. Bosboom (1817-1891) and H.W. Mesdag (1831-1915). Initially, these painters carried out their designs themselves. If it prooved a successful design, Joost Thooft asked the painter permission to copy the design. In addition to specially designed designs for De Porceleyne Fles, existing paintings by contemporary masters were also used, of which this picture on the Plaque is an example.)

The Plaque is in excellent condition, No cracks or repairs at all! It does have the for this type of Earthenware typical grazing of the glaze. However the Plaque must have been preserved behind protecting glass as the grazing is not darkened. There are some tiny factory flaws in the glaze, please see close-up photo's.
It has markings, under glaze, on the reverse. The year-code is G for 1885! Also can be seen the old pressed-in mark of JOOST THOOFT & LABOUCHERE, the owners of the factory before Joost Thoofd died and Labouchere continued with just De Porceleyne Fles as brandname.
The Plaque measures 45,5 cm or nearly 18 inches across.
Hard to make good photo's that show the typical blue of the Royal Delft realistic. But the connoisseur will know how it looks in real, this piece done in the early period of De Porceleyne Fles in the days when Leon Senf painted it.
