Netherlands Dutch Milkmaid with Windmill on Apron (Three-Quarter View)

Netherlands Dutch Milkmaid with Windmill on Apron (Three-Quarter View)

This little milkmaid from the Netherlands is made from Delft pottery, commonly referred to as Delft Blue because it is painted blue. Delft Blue is made from clay that is often coated with a tin glaze after it is fired. The following imprint appears in blue paint on the inside of the skirt: HANDP.D.BLUE 98.9828. This figure stands 5 inches (13 cm) tall.
