The tag says that it costs 550 Euros for the set. A bit steep I must say but when you look at the effort that has gone into the making of this pair, I think it is worth reconsidering.
Had been to the Delft Pottery in Netherlands about six months ago. A visit to the factory is worth it if you are in Netherlands.
They take you through a set of articles that are on display with special mention about how it was made. For example “The Night Watchman” is a collection of 480 tiles of 18x18cms.
The original painting of 1642 by Rembrandt was 13 ft x 16 ft. It took more than a year for two master painters to convert this on to the tiles by individually painting them by hand.
The best part was that the tiles were sold even before the painting was over. To this day the owner has loaned the set to the museum so that the visitors can enjoy this unique piece.Before you enter this section, there is an audio visual display giving you a brief history of how Delft pottery came into Netherlands.
Time stands still on this table with the Delft pottery.
King Willem III has donated his collection with the condition that it will be exhibited in a "dignified fashion"
I admire this model who agreed to wear all this pottery and walk the ramp
The old drafting board that was used by them is also one of the exhibits
Further down one can have a glimpse at their factory where each piece is physically examined by a person and final touches given with the help of a leg operated “pottery wheel”
All in all a good experience. Have made a 8 min video with more photographs:
