Pair of Candlesticks, 27 cm High, Model 78, Zuid-Holland Gouda, made between 1897-1899

A pair of Gouda plateel candlesticks, made by the South Holland plateel bakery between 1897-1899. It concerns model 78 of 27 cm high. Private Collection.


This pair of candlesticks was made in Gouda, between 1897 and 1899. They are gorgeous, slender, tall candlesticks measuring 27 cm or 10.6 inches in length. They have a wide base of 11 cm or 4.3 inches in diameter above a narrow foot and four very thin, graceful arms at the top. It concerns model 78 of the Dutch Pottery Factory Zuid-Holland from Gouda. A model that has different versions, of which this is the earliest. The candlesticks are very sparingly decorated with blue and green tones. At the top of the candlesticks you can see some brick red details. Unfortunately, the signature is illegible, so it is not known who painted the candlesticks. One candlestick is completely pristine, the other has undergone a professional restoration on a small chip at the base. This is barely visible.

The candlesticks are not for sale and belong to my private collection.
