Chemkefa (1969 – today)
Chemkefa is the abbreviated name of Chemisch Keramisch Fabriek, which was started by the former Sphinx employee Leendert Zwikker when the Sphinx factory closed in 1969. Located in Maastricht, Chemkefa specializes in screenprinted blue & white decorative Delftware chargers with traditional Dutch scenes, including landscapes, seascapes, and scenes from life. Perhaps the most popular design is that of a wedding couple in a horse-drawn carriage, based on a painting by Eerelman from 1839. Chemkefa also produces its own designs, including a set of four seasons plates. Following in Sphinx’s footsteps, Chemkefa uses a very dark blue paint, however Chemkefa avoids the use of borders around the edges in order to simplify the transfer printing process. Chemkefa’s printed mark includes the words Delfts Blauw Chemkefa made in Holland Maastricht and features a crown, a flower, a triangle, and a flask.
