About
My name is Isabella Kaizer and since 5 years the owner of the House of Vermeer shop. My parents started the store back in 1973 as Delft Blue Pottery, somewhat later, my father turned it into the Royal Delft Blue Shop and since March 2014 I have changed the name to House of Vermeer, because the shop “House Mechelen” is a unique building who deserves this name. Mechelen house is the house where Johannes Vermeer lived for a very long time. In our shop we sell authentic handpainted Delftware pottery such as Porceleyne fles but also of smaller factories such as, Montagne and the Blue Tulip. We also sell lovely Dutch gadgets like Cow Parade and My-Gifts christmas ornaments, but also Barcino and The Elephant Parade. We also manufacture our own jewelry under the label “Delft Blue Beads”. We design and make our jewelry since 2009. We can also provide premium gifts, but if you want something bespoke you can always call or email us for any queries.

Delft is a lovely little town. The Vermeer museum is dedicated to his artworks of which there are only just over thirty left in the world. Obviously scattered around the globe, the museum has an historical replicated display of each of his paintings. We were fortunate enough to arrive in time for the guided English tour which starts at 10.30. Our guide was very informative and I would highly recommend doing the tour which lasts around an hour.

Although this museum is relatively small and does not have any original Vermeer paintings, nevertheless it gives an interesting and informative background to the period of Vermeer's short life and the perceived objectives of some of his artwork. There is an excellent gift shop on the ground floor and a lift for the upper floor level. The staff are enthusiastic and helpful. The museum is well located in the town centre.

House of Vermeer is one of many shops at Markt which sell Royal delftware and souvenirs.

This is a small ground floor shop with blue coloured Delftware as well as other Christmas tree ornaments and other items. We found products in this shop to be more accessible and lower-priced items compared to other Royal Delft Ware shops on the square selling mostly higher price items.

Interestingly, this shop is called 'House of Vermeer' taking its name from the historical house where Johannes Vermeer lived at as a child. That property was known as Mechelen House and was supposed to have been located in the open space you see now between House of Vermeer and the Royal Delft Ware shop, directly facing Markt. It seems that house was demolished around 1885.

Great collection of delft pottery and gift items. The artwork is very delicate and very well done. The prices are reasonable. For non Europe residents a claim form can be filled to get back the VAT.
