  • More recent production technique After 1850, factories in and outside Holland developed more efficient and cheaper production techniques. This goes beyond the scope of this website. Read more

Het onderstreepte Delft doet denken aan het type blauw-wit aardewerk dat de firma MOSA in Maastricht hanteerde. Ik denk dat het stuk rond 1900 gemaakt is.

Dear Pat G.,

One thing I'm sure about this is not Dutch delftware. Probably the fake mark AP for pottery De Twee Scheepjes was used on this object. It looks French to me, but I don't know the meaning of the other marks. If this is a French copy, this vase was probably made in the late 19th /around the 20th century.
