There is not a whole lot of non-Danish ceramics to be found on markets here in Denmark, except Rörstrand and other Scandinavian types of pottery. But Gouda vases are quite common and I have always wanted one! This little vase is of the ‘Melvin’ pattern and I assume it is from around 1920, but if anyone knows how to date Gouda pottery, I’d be glad to know more (I’ve tried to google it, but it seemed a little labyrinthine…). I assume I don’t have to go into details about the Gouda factory – there is already quite a few pieces on display in here!
Height. 12 cm. Mark: Illegible number (perhaps 2026). Pattern name ‘Melvin’. The Gouda mark (‘little house'). On the left side of this a plant-like sign (the artist?) and the right ‘AT’ which should be the date. Does anyone know what year ‘AT’ is? And finally ‘Holland’. Above the marking somethings has been scratched, but I can’t read it.
