This antique ceramic Gouda pottery vase has a beautiful P-decor with sunflowers. The vase was made by pottery company Zuid-Holland from Gouda in the period 1902-1905. The vase is 13.3 cm or 5.1 inches high and 8.5 cm or 3.1 inches wide. It is model 37 from the Gouda pottery factory. Despite it’s limited size, you can see a very detailed painting on the vase in the so-called P decor. This decor was brought onto the market by the Gouda pottery factory in 1902 to compete with the – then very popular and expensive – Rozenburg eggshell porcelain. The P stands for Porcelain. These decors are also called ‘kantjes’ decors, because of the fine lines and dots. Kantjes means ‘little lace’. This decor was painted by Louis Peeters. The bright, clear colours are striking. It is also in excellent condition. The vase is well signed with the factory logo, the words: made in Zuid Holland, the signature of Peeters (LR) and the reference to the decor: Q/B.
