This vase was made by the Zuid-Holland pottery company from the Dutch city of Gouda in the period 1902-1904. The vase was painted by Johannes de Vries, who worked at the Gouda pottery factory between 1901 and 1904. De Vries was a very talented P-decor painter. This is obvious in the quality of painting on this vase. P-decor (P stands for porcelain) is the decor that the Zuid-Holland pottery company introduced in 1902, to compete with the then very popular and expensive eggshell porcelain from the Rozenburg factory from The Hague. Although this is painted earthenware, the decor on this vase is very refined, with areas of colour composed of very thin lines and dots. The decor on this vase has very bright colours. This decor is also know as ‘kantjes’. This vase is 27 cm or 10.6 inches high and 11 cm or 4.3 inches wide. The vase is in mint condition and well signed with the words Made in Zuid Holland, the factory logo, the decor number: P/B and the signature of Johannes de Vries: JdV.
