This vase was made by the Rozenburg pottery factory from The Hague in The Netherlands. The vase is model 424, a design with a convex belly with a constriction at the top. The vase has two handles and is 21 cm or 8.2 inches high and 16 cm or 6.3 inches wide. The vase is painted in a beautiful decor of sunflowers, in a colour combination of brown, orange green and dark turquoise. The decor also depicts leaves and flowerbuds. The vase was made on November 25, 1898 and was painted by J. Verbeek Wolthuys. We know this because the vase has a very clear work order number on the bottom. And fortunately, Rozenburg’s work order books have been preserved and can be consulted via The Hague Municipal Archives. The vase is also well signed with the name of the factory, the logo, the work order number: 1243 and the signature of Verbeek Wolthuys (VW). The vase is in good condition. A chip has been (visibly) restored at the bottom of the neck.
This vase is not for sale and belongs to my private collection
