The mark is from Tichelaar in Makkum. It’s therefore not authentic Delftware. I’m not sure on the age of the pieces, it looks like they are tin glazed, so maybe the end of the 19th century or beginning 20th century?

 Kind regards, Patrick

Thanks to PatrickW for his expertise. 

Let wel, ’Nieuwere productietechniek’ is gedeeltelijk, de schildering is de oude techniek, het is op de rauwe glazuur geschilderd, groet jvdh.

Mind you, 'Newer production technique' is partial, the painting is the old technique, it is painted on the raw glaze, Regards jvdh.
