This bowl was made by Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland from Gouda between 1899 and 1904. The object is 8 cm or 3,14 inch high and 13 cm or 5,1 inch wide and is signed with the model number 119. This model originally had a lid, painted in the same decor, but this is missing. The bowl is in good condition.
The object is painted with a decor of purple and light pink irises and green swirling shapes, which are so characteristic of the Art Nouveau period. The beige background of the biscuit is still visible in the decor, a characteristic of an early example of Gouds Plateel. Although the bowl has no year mark, the production period is estimated to be between 1899 and 1904. The bowl is signed with the logo of the factory – the Lazarus gate – and the signature of Michel van der Heidt.
