Delft is a city and municipality in the province of South Holland, Netherlands. It is located between Rotterdam, to the southeast and The Hague, to the northwest. Once the seat of the royal House of Orange, the 15th-century 'Nieuwe Kerk' Church houses the family's tombs and overlooks Delft's lively market square. Delft is well known for the Delft pottery ceramic products which were styled on the imported Chinese porcelain of the 17th century. The city had an early start in this area since it was a home port of the Dutch East India Company.
