Thanks for sharing this set.

It is indeed a French copy with a fake 'de Paauw' mark, made in the early 20th century.

Thank you for sharing this bowl. It is made in the 19th or early 20th century. I am not sure where it has been made. Possibly in Maastricht, The Netherlands, or maybe in England.

Merk:

  • 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.

It isn't made in Delft. Possibly the plate is Portuguese. The RG mark resembles that of Fabrica de Santo Antonio do Vale da Piedade, Rossi in Porto and the plate does appear Southern European to me. Although it is not my specialism, it might give you a direction.

Beste Billy,

Ik zie geen foto's bij daglicht. Op basis van de huidige foto's lijkt mij het vaasje 18de eeuws en Delfts. Er ontbreekt inderdaad een knop op de deksel. Deze kan verschillende vormen hebben gehad.
