Our collection is focused on Dutch antique Pottery from the Art Nouveau Periode. This is decorative ceramics, produced between 1885 and 1915. Most object from this periode are hand painted in dark colours, suing typica style elements from the Art Nouveau period such as floral design and swirly motives. Objects are shiny because of their glazed finish. The Dutch factories, especially from the town of Gouda produced decorative pottery well into the 1960’s. Ceramics, produced after 1920 often are matt glazed and colourful. These kinds of ceramics are abundant and not very rare.
