Great images and info. May 29, 2010
I found this book to be very informative with regard to the factories and owners of the 16-1700's. It gave a time-table of important events and the changing of hands at the different factories over the years as well as great images of the important pieces and styles of Delft over time. When items began to be marked and marks used at different times within the factories is also mentioned.
