This wall charger or plate of Dutch Art Nouveau Gouda pottery is painted with a beautiful decor of purple flower buds and green leaves on a white background. With beautiful patterns of green-yellow waves and purple stars that fill in part of the background, just like the orange cobwebs. It is a so-called NP-decor from the Gouda factory, also called ‘kantjes’ decor (which translates to: lace), designed by W.P. Hartgring. A popular design that the Gouda pottery factory introduced around 1908 to compete with popular, but very expensive Rozenburg eggshell porcelain. The charger/plate was made between 1909 and 1917 by the Zuid-Holland ceramics factory from Gouda, in the Netherlands. The object is 25.4 cm or 10 inch in diameter and is in excellent condition. There is no visible damage. Please note: this is not a wall charger per se, the holes for a suspension mechanism on the back are missing. But you can buy hanging systems, especially fro this type of ceramics. The Gouda plate has model 4148 and is signed with the factory logo, the name Zuid-Holland Gouda and the signature NN. The name of the painter is unknown.
