Out of stock


This large flower pot, or so-called cachepot, was made by the Dutch pottery factory Rozenburg from The Hague in 1899. The pot is large and heavy: 20.5 cm or 8 inches high and 26 cm or 10.2 inches wide. The object is painted with a decor of frogs. There are several frogs on the pot, both bright green and brown-green. The frog legs, which intertwine at the bottom of the cachepot, are very nice. The inside of the edge also has a motif of frog legs. The cachepot is signed with the name of the pottery factory: Rozenburg Den Haag, the logo and the year mark for 1899: the anchor. You will also see work order number #925. The work order books can be consulted digitally via the archive of the Municipality of The Hague. It states that the cachepot was painted between July 29 and August 4, 1899 by W.F.A. Stolle. We also see the model number in the books: model 74. The object is in excellent condition. No damage or restoration has been observed. The surface does have a visible pattern of craquelure (see photo).
