Tall Vase


This vase is 2 sided. It appears to be a set of 2. There are some scratches along the that show a darker material beneath the white exterior.


Would love to know what era these pieces are from and any other information on the maker. We have a vast collection of pieces with very similar markings. Thank you for any information.

10” tall by 7” wide

Your vase is made by the Porceleyne Fles in Delft. The painter is C.A.M. v.d. Wee and he painted between 1961 and 1972. Year code CP stands for 1971.

If you’d like to decipher your other pieces, please find a list of painter’s initials here:
