Hello. The bowl  is from 1957.  Products from this period of the factory De Porcelyne Fles aren't rare. Sorry but we don't give values on this platform. The pupose of this website is sharing knowledge. Wit kind regards, Kristin

Has nothing to do with tin-glazed earthenware. This is painted on a white shard (once fired white clay, whether or not provided with an engo layer), and then provided with a transparent glaze, it is an 'underglaze painting'. Tin glaze is a white-covering glaze, created by adding an amount of tin oxide to a transparent glaze composition. In this object, the difference between underglaze or overglaze painting is of essential importance, greetings jvdh.
