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 5/351 is the model number."
However Valkma has been able to add this extra information: Cornelus Petrus Willebrordus Verkley (born 1928 ) worked at the factory from 1944 to 1949.
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.
