Starting from the end of the 17 th century and almost throughout the whole 18 th century, wall tiles manufactured in the Netherlands were a popular element of the European interior décor. They came into fashion with the European aristocracy starting with the Trianon de Porcelaine of Louis XIV, this coinciding with the longstanding fascination with Oriental china and the interest in Chinoiserie. In the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Dutch tiles were used the earliest in the residences of King John III Sobieski in Żółkiew, Jaworów, and Wilanów.
