Could be the world's smallest pitcher?


I'm wondering if the signature matches that of "LVS" for L. von Stein and hoping you can tell me what exactly it is.

About 6 inches tall and 3 inches around

Your pitcher is made (hand painted) in the mid to late 20th century by Keramiekfabriek Velsen te Sassenheim. Unfortunately it is not original Delftware.


  • Not Delftware


  • 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
  • Mark of a non-Delft pottery/factory The typical Delftware also inspires producers outside of Delft, but genuine Delftware has only been produced in Delft. Read more

Indeed possibly the smallest pitcher, at least you know you won’t get drunk when drinking from this one. As Mr. PatrickW correctly stated indeed Velsen.
