This ewer has a high foot and a remarkably high ear. The ewer was made by Fayance and Tile factory Holland from Utrecht in The Netherlands. The object has a decor with white flowers against a blue and beige background and has brick red details. Beautifully painted are the butterflies on the neck and the dandelions on the foot. The jug is 38.4 cm or 15 inches high and 14 cm or 5.5 inches wide. The model has a high foot, where a small chip has been professionally restored and a short beak. The ear and the beak are still in perfect condition. The Pottery and Tile Factory Holland made tiles and decorative pottery between 1896 and 1906, in the heyday of Art Nouveau. Objects generally have a slightly lighter color palette than Rozenburg and are richly decorated with floral and animal motifs, characteristic of that period and style. Jan Willem Mijnlieff (1862-1937), who painted and signed this vase, bought the Fayence and Tile Factory Holland in Utrecht in 1894. The company achieved international fame under his leadership, especially after a presentation of Art Nouveau pottery at the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. Between 1900 and 1906 exports to foreign countries grew. After 1906, the factory mainly produced tiles and tile pictures. The vase is from the year 1900 and signed with the monogram of J.W. Mijnlieff (JM). The number: 54D is engraved in the base.
