Beautiful teapot


I was wondering if its a fake. Because there is a mark, but also a date and handpainted on it what makes it I guess a fake. But it is still a beauty. Love to hear anyone telling me more about the piece. Thank you friendly.

  • VL small s

This jug is made in the 20th century at Velsen Ceramics Factory (Velsen, Sassenheim), 1920-2002 with the original Delftware as inspirational source.

It may not be immediately noticeable, but the brand of the Velsen ceramics factory is characterized by a composition of the capital letters VL with a small s next to it. The composition of the letters VL can also resemble a fountain or flower stem.
