Set of 3 vases. 2 lidded mantle vases plus a companion vase.

I think these vases were made at the end of the 19th Century by the famous Frisian (North-East Netherlands) factory Tichelaar in Makkum. This factory has made the finest delftware tiles and other wares since 1689. The vases are marked with two intertwined letters ‘T’.

Indeed signed for -- and made at the Tichelaar factory in Makkum, Friesland (NL) around 1900. Thanks to Jeroen Hartgers.

Let op, de beschildering, wat de meeste arbeid is om dit product te maken, is op de rauwe glazuur gedaan, de zgn. oude techniek, groet jvdh.

Please note, the painting, which is the most labor to make this product, is done on the raw glaze, the so-called old technique, greetings jvdh.
