KLM オランダ航空 デルフト ブルーハウス No.72
KLM オランダ航空 Delft Blue House No.72のモデルになった家の詳細情報
Singel dates back to around 1425, but none of the earliest buildings have survived. The majority that now lines either side of the canal was built in the 17th and 18th centuries, with an emphasis on latter.
One of these 18th-century buildings is the corner house at Singel 87 that is actually much taller in scale than the house in the KLM series. The building dates from around 1730 and has a neck gable with corner vases left and right. The top is crowned with a bust of Mercury, the god of commerce. This symbol was in common use during the time when Amsterdam was one of the world’s most important centers of trade.
