      Jaap Ravelli's pottery (Potterij Ravelli) operated from Valkenburg, near Leiden, The Netherlands, from 1944 - 1977. Ravelli pottery climbed sharply in value in the 1990, and then suffered a serious slump in prices after the stock market crash of 2000. The black-and-white tiles, the tribal pieces, the Colorite, and the one-offs or unique pieces turned and decorated by Jaap himself ('unicas', in Dutch) are the most expensive. Rumour has it that Ravelli made some of the unique pieces as gifts for his many female friends. The pottery is hardly known outside The Netherlands and most of the collectors are Dutch (although Ravelli did export across the world). The bright orange pieces and bark-effect vases are still affordable. For an excellent website with extensive photo galleries, see http://www.grul.nl/

      It was easy and lucky, the dealer had a buy it now on his Ebay page, i saw it 3 minutes after it was put up, you really need to be fast on the fair priced items.
