This vase was made by the Dutch pottery company Zuid-Holland from Gouda in the period 1901-1907. The vase has an impressive size. It is 39.5 cm or 15.5 inch high and 20 cm or 7.8 inch wide. This is model 5011, a large vase with a round base, a hexagonal belly, which ends in a narrow, round neck. The vase is painted with a P-decor or ‘kantjes’ decor of red flowers on a background of yellow and green. Both the flowers and the colour areas are made up entirely of small figures, such as lines, waves and tiny flowers. Unfortunately, both the red and yellow colours did not catch on as well. This makes the bright green stand out because of the intensity and brightness of the colour. The vase has a white background with a nice pattern of craquelure. The vase is well signed with the factory name and logo. You will also see a reference to the decor: P/B and the signature of Franciscus Fonville (F) who painted this vase. The vase is in very good condition. Presumably a chip was been restored at the foot in the past. But there’s nothing to see.
Elsewhere in the store there is a vase with the same model and a different decor.
