Miniature Delft Houses (Each)

R78.00R90.00

I’m so proud of my little stash of Delft houses! They’re so hard to find, so to have five houses to show off today is something of a coup! Don’t they look great sitting side by side? I fell in love with the Delt houses a few years back when I saw a Dutch friend of mine’s collection – he had a looong shelf full of them, and they looked amazing! KLM have been giving these little houses to their Business and Royal class customers since 1952 as a way around regulations that prohibited them from giving gifts to passengers – they filled the houses with Dutch Genever, and claimed that they were simply vessels for serving drinks! Smarty pants! The idea proved super popular, and the houses soon became collectors’ items which is how they landed up in the sphere of the antiques world. Some of the houses are considered more desirable than others, and one of the houses that we have for sale today (no. 48, Rembrandt House) is on  a list of the eight most collectible Delft houses! Woohoo!

Dimensions: Each house measures approx. 10cm tall x 4cm wide x 4cm deep
