Hello,

It was made by Keramiekfabriek Velsen te Sassenheim, so it was made in Sassenheim. The factory used this trade mark after 1942 and judging from the craquelle I think it's produced around mid 20th century. N.T. will be the painter's inititials, I don't know who that belongs to though.

Kind regards,
Patrick

Verdict:

  • Not Delftware

Analysis:

  • 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
