The pattern is called Oud Rhodesia or is it Old Rhodesia?

It has a deco feel to it. I have had it now for thirty years. When I first found it at a market one Saturday I puzzled over the marks. At that time research on Gouda marks was rather sketchy and not all of the year marks were known. The three lines with a cross-hatch was one of these unknowns. I only learnt about the date of 1954 about ten years ago. Up until then I thought it might have been from the thirties. I still do not know about the artists mark. I have seen the design on quite a few different shapes. This form I believe to be a gin bottle and it may well have had a round ceramic top with a cork as a stopper.
It retains the original green/silver label used from 1950 -1955.
A similar vase is thought to have been painted by Johann van Kersbergen.

    Very handsome piece. Nice simple shape and a great flourish of decoration.
    It does look like 'Old' before Rhodesia, but I have seen pieces of Dutch pottery marked 'OUD',..........so one of those must be correct!:),....( smart, Huh? )
    One of these days I'll list an old liquer decanter that I have, also from Holland.
    I think you'll appreciate it's painted design, bottle shape, and pottery crown stopper.
    Anyways, Thanks for listing this beautiful piece,
    Tony.

    You have so many frangible art objects that I'd be a nervous wreck if I had to dust your place. miKKo

    Many thanks bratjdd, BELLIN68, lisa & Budek too!
    Thanks for the thoughts too about the perils of collecting ceramics and glass, miKKo. There are no pets so any breakages are at a minimum.
