The latest edition of @homes_antiques just came in and we are thrilled with their article on Delft tiles by @sophhannam. The past 50 years we have been addicted to 'Delft tiles', which eventually turned a hobby into a profession. The profession led to the family firm it is today. The company is currently being run by Durk Regts (33), but his father Klaas Regts (70), who started it all, still works with him each day. The appreciation for our tiles and what we do with it tell us that we are on the right track. #delfttiles #dutchtiles #antiquetiles #delftblue #delftware #reclaimed #reclaimedtiles #homesandantiques #homes #antiques #interiors #architecturaldigest #reclaimed #dutchdesign #walltiles #fliesen #kacheln #livingwithantiques #elledecor #1stdibs #designicon #magazine #worldofinteriors #fireplacetiles #kitchenbacksplash

Finally we are able to share with you one of the most extraordinary tile panels we have had for sale during the past decade. This Delft tile mural dates back to 1784 and was fabricated by pottery Kingma in the Dutch city of Makkum. It was painted by Adam Sijbel who was one of the most talented artists of his time. It depicts a sea scenery with different kind of ships in the center, but what makes it really stand out are the two figures on each side. Mercury on the right side is the God of financial gain, commerce, travelers, luck and so on. Aeolus on the left was the keeper of the winds. He was able to release favorable winds, which was of course a boost for the ships in the center and thus their owner. The entire scene therefore symbolizes prosperity in trade and commerce. The mural has a rich history, as it comes from Sutton Place, Surrey in the United Kingdom. Sutton place is the former home of Jean Paul Getty and currently owned by Alisher Usmanov. It measures approximately 169 cm’s/66,5 inches wide and 52 cm’s/20,5 inches tall, which is unusually large for original Delft tile murals. It has completely been prepared by us to be reused for a tiling project. For more information and photos, please visit our website. It is for sale. . Interesting to know; tile murals painted by Adam Sijbel are part of the collection of the @rijksmuseum and the @metmuseum. We are in good company! #delfttiles #dutchtiles #antiquetiles #delftblue #delftware #reclaimed #reclaimedtiles #adamsijbel #seascenery #kingma #mercury #aeolus #tilemural #tilepanel #interiors #1stdibs #architecturaldigest #interiordesign #antiquedealersofinstagram #fireplacetiles #jeanpaulgetty #suttonplace #worldofinteriors #homeideas #artlovers #artbloggers #18thcentury #blueandwhite

On the 31st of May 2016 Klaas and Durk Regts - father and son) appeared on 'Bynt', a talk show of 'Omrop Fryslan' in the Netherlands. The spoken language is Frisian, which unfortunately makes it hard for our international visitors to understand the conversation, but as the clip also shows our warehouse and how we work we nevertheless wanted to share it with you! We hope to add subtitles in the near future.
