    Three months ago I found this little jug and I have been hunting high and low for an attribution for the design. But no luck!!! Goedewaagen, Koninklijke Hollandse Pijpen- en Aardewerkfabriek dates back to 1610. It is the largest of the ceramics factories in Gouda.

    Perhaps someone on CW knows something about these "un-Gouda-like pieces"? Mind you I have been able to work out a little about them.

    It seems they were part of a series of pieces that were designed by 'someone' during the years of the Great Depression. During the time period the factory was lead by Willem Hendrik van Norden (1883-1978). At one stage they were called in Dutch "crisis-aardewerk" crisis (or Depression) pottery.

    What is new is that these days they are being referred to as "Experimenteel Kunstaardewerk" (Experimental Art Pottery). Goedewaagen's slogan these days tells you something about their 'bent': "Tomorrow's Design since 1610!" It seems that in their day they were as expensive as the hand decorated Gouda wares that we expect to see.

    From my research on the net I have seen that there was a lecture on the topic at the Keramisch Museum Goedewaagen May 6, 2012.
    It is mentioned here: http://www.kanaalstreek.nl/…/lezingen-over-aardewerk-verni…/

    Some FB friends in the Netherlands are helping me but perhaps some others here on CW can add something too?

    I have my suspicions about Willem Stuurman. He did work for Goedewaagen for a short time.

    On the bottom it reads: ROYAL GOEDEWAAGEN/GOUDA/HOLLAND/MADE IN/HOLLAND

    There is an impressed 21 - a design number I think.

    H: 9.5 cm or 3.75"
