Though, this industry did not remain as booming as in the 17th century because in the 19th century (1840 to be precise) Royal Delft was the last factory standing.
The reasons for this decrease are mostly to be found in the competition from the English Wedgwood and European porcelain industry; the eastern porcelain was cheaper and a lack of innovation amongst the Delft potters.
However, we have now sold out of the books, "Discovering Dutch Delftware." The best option is to find them for sale used on either e Bay or Amazon.com, and pick one up that way.
Of course this was made possible by the high demand for the product and because of the decrease in beer breweries that were suited for transforming into earthenware factories.
However, the most important reason, was probably that in the 17th century China faced a civil war which decreased the import of porcelain.
For Royal Delft, it all started in 1653 when David Anthonisz van der Pieth transformed his house into an earthenware factory.
Unfortunately for Van der Pieth his son was far from interested in this business and therefore he had to sell his factory real soon.
