Delftware
Louis Victor Gourde Vase18 March 2021

Verdict:

  • Delftware

Analysis:

  • Delftware, made between 1620 – 1850 Only tin-glazed earthenware made in Delft between 1620 - 1850 is referred to as traditional Delftware. Read more
  • Tin-glazed earthenware Earthenware with a glaze to which tin oxide has been added to make it opaque white. Delftware produced before 1850 is always covered with a tin glaze. Read more
  • Hand-painted An important characteristic of authentic Delftware is that it is hand-painted. Printing techniques do not occur on this earthenware. Read more
  • Unidentified mark Not all marks found on earthenware have been identified. It could be a ‘new’ Delft mark! But it could also be a mark that was not used in Delft. Read more

The vase is indeed an authentic Delftware vase, produced around 1700. It probably had some siblings to form either a pair or even a garniture set. Also, probably the rim was damaged at one point and that is why they gave it this mount.

Verdict:

  • Not Delftware

Analysis:

  • Not made in Delft The term Delftware is only used for earthenware actually produced in Delft. Read more
  • 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
  • Hand-painted An important characteristic of authentic Delftware is that it is hand-painted. Printing techniques do not occur on this earthenware. Read more
  • Forged mark In the 19th century, a financial incentive arose to sell more new earthenware as antique Delftware, sometimes even bearing forged Delft factory marks. Read more

Helaas betreft het hier inderdaad een latere imitatie. Meest voor de hand liggend is dat dit is vervaardigd in een fabriek in (noord) Frankrijk rond 1900. Met zijn bijzondere formaat, toch zeker een indrukwekkende pot met deksel!

Beste Dirk, alhoewel de lichte kleur blauw en de decoratie suggereert dat het hier om een laat 17e eeuws bordje zou gaan, wil ik gezien het model en de glazuur op de achterkant een kleine slag om de arm houden en deze dateren op 'circa 1700.' Een erg leuk bordje! Gefeliciteerd.

De fabriek De Distel was oorspronkelijk in 1895 gevestigd in Amsterdam. Ze werden in de jaren '20 van de twintigste eeuw overgenomen door Royal Goedewaagen en daarmee  was de productie onder die naam ook weer gedaan. Het octrooi is waarschijnlijk aangevraagd op het luchtdichte sluitingssysteem van de deksel. Of die ook is toegekend is mij niet bekend.

Dit is inderdaad een keurige 18e eeuwse schotel. Het is natuurlijk spijtig dat het niet in goede staat is en dat ook de restauratie niet erg goed is gedaan. Het blijft echter leuk en decoratief!

Het is inderdaad het schilderwerk van zowel de voorkant en ook het merkteken, dat wijst op een vervalsing. Ik weet niet of een dergelijk decor ook in de vroegere periode is gebruikt, ik ken het in ieder geval niet.

I am sorry that we cannot help with this one, apart from the fact that it is not a Delft jug. It was most probably produced in Southern Europe, maybe Italy? Good luck with your further search.

These are typical Dutch souvenirs and they cannot be attributed to be authentic Delft. Possibly they were even produced in China to be sold here. Did your grandparents visit Holland at any point?

Dit is het merkteken van De Delftse Pauw (Delftweg 133, Rijswijk), een fabriek die al eeuwen bestaat. Uw vaasje is echter gemaakt in de 20e eeuw.

Alhoewel het met een slag om de arm is, denk ik op basis van de kleur, het decor en kleine details dat deze tegels werden vervaardigd in Utrecht rond 1800-1830. In die stad stonden één of twee fabrieken, die bekend waren om de tegelproductie. In dit boek kunt u op pagina 186 een vergelijkbare tegel zien.
