Inspired by the Delft Blue pottery produced in the Netherlands since the 1500's, this world map features up-to-date cartography, while capturing an "old world" feel.

Designs that used the combination of cobalt blue and white earthenware became known as “Delft Blue” and became the signature look for Delftware. Delftware pieces were produced for everyday use and for decorative display, including pictorial plates and decorative tiles.

Delft Blue became so popular in Europe and throughout the world that the blue and white designs have left an indelible mark on European culture. Whether the designs are of traditional Dutch scenes of windmills and fishing boats, or Chinese inspired scenes, the glazed Delftware pottery dominated the European and British market until the mid-1700's.
