Blauw-witte decoracties waren ook op Engels tafelgoed zeer geliefd.

De aardewerkfabriek O.U.D. Delft uit Nijmegen en Waddinxveen merkte tussen 1940-1968 met een handbeschilderd merk zoals dat op de kan is aangebracht. De initialen zijn rond een pottenbakkersschijf geplaatst. De kan is met Chinese motieven gedecoreerd.

Een aanwijzing dat het om een 20ste-eeuwse kan gaat, in plaats van een 17de-eeuwse, vormen de vele barsten in het glazuur. Bij het oudere aardewerk zijn die vaak niet te zien.

  • Delftware, but made after 1850 After 1850, the earthenware production technique changed at the only remaining pottery in Delft. This technique goes beyond the scope of this website. Read more

Het merk van een pottenbakkersschijf met de initialen O.U.D. is zoals Jan aangeeft door de fabriek Oud Delft uit Nijmegen en later Waddinxveen gemaakt. Het werd tussen 1940 en 1968 toegepast. 

De vorm van het vaasje is interessant. Oorspronkelijk werd het van glas gemaakt met geknepen 'vleugel'-handvatten. Dit glas werd in de 17de eeuw in China van porselein nagemaakt. In de 20ste eeuw werd het in Delftse-stijl uitgevoerd door deze Nijmeegse aardewerkfabriek.

Het merk behoort niet tot de Amsterdamse Distel-fabriek die in de periode 1895-1923 art nouveau/deco keramiek maakte. Dit merk is de latere variant die vanaf circa 1960 werd toegepast door de Goedewaagen-fabriek (Gouda, Nieuw-Buinen) voor aardewerk met patronen in Delftse stijl.
