Small vase found on a flea market. Looks hand painted. Has a mark. Has craquelure.


Is it real or fake?
What is the age?
Is it possible to tell the artist?

Looking at the unglazed ceramic, visible on the bottom rim, this is slipcast earthenware - a technique devised after the period of antique Delftware. Although we don't see any known marks, when 'Delft(s)' or 'Made in Holland' was written on the bottom, this is usually a sign that the makers wanted to let potential buyers know the affinity to Delftware and/or the Netherlands.

I think it will be very difficult to tell you an exact artist as these types of pieces have been made in great numbers, industrial production. In this sense, it cannot be said that this piece is 'fake' as it doesn't try to be anything it's not, but it is definitely not antique/original Delftware. Hopefully this has been of help!

Everything is hand-painted, greetings jvdh.
