Delft, The Netherlands

"This small town is well known for its fine blue and white china. It had frequent contacts
with the orient in the early 16th century and traders returned with a new product: Chinese
porcelain. Delft started to copy this beautifully decorative art form and is now famous
for its own version: Blue Delftware." --Jan Fredrik

Thanks to Jan Fredrik for phooning (and for the photo idea).
