A Favourite of mine is this gloss plate of a tiger lily made in Gouda by Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland (PZH). It has decoration in the "kantjes" manner: very fine cross-hatching and overlapping of the lines to build up the design.
I'm grateful to Stuart Lonsdale at "Gouda Design" for his attribution of this plate: "The date is circa 1910 - 1915. The painter 'CV' could possibly be Frans Vermeij. He was a painter for PZH from circa 1905 to circa 1928. The 5/351 is the model number."
I like these pieces that were influenced by the artists at Rozenburg.
My plate is not in that league, but it still reminds me of the influence of Indonesia on the arts in the Netherlands early last century.
