Fruits and Foliage; a long-lasting theme on Dutch Delft tiles

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the demand for still-live paintings increased, influencing the painters of Delft tiles. Around that time more and more tiles were decorated with fruits and foliage, such as grapes, pears, apples and leafs. Symbolism plays an important role in their popularity, as the grapes were not only a symbol for fertility, but were also associated with virginity. Easy recognizable is the use of a lot of orange, which refers to the 'House of Orange', better known as the Dutch royals.
