Look closely at this vase. Bubbles rise up and make this a one of a kind item.
Her pattern is called ‘Fine Cut Rings’ (reg. no¬ 704493) and she is a rare beauty. Her marigold carnival sister is a bit more common.
Her origin is vague. I know she has been around from at least 1924 (because a sister of her was gifted to someone’s grandparents in that year). But she might be older.
Who made her is another mystery. Leerdam, Rindskopf and Libochovice have been mentioned. I’ve written to Leerdam, but their archives didn’t go that far back, so it’s not possible to determine if she came from them or not.
She has been used, but her uniqueness make her a valuable treasure.

A curvey young lady. Round Knödgen green and orange vase.
The only thing I know about this round vase is that she’s from Knödgen Keramik. I think that means she’s probably not older than 22. She's 15 cm high and by the look of it, just as round.
She’s been used. She’s a little chipped at the bottom. Her glaze is not perfect. But she is charming nevertheless. She’s been used as a flowerpot. Don’t worry, I’ll give her a good bath.

Handthrown jug by Dutch artist Adrie Moerings (1939-2010). This sturdy jug is made by the last ceramic pipe maker in The Netherlands, Adrie Moerings. Not only did he make pipes, he also made sturdy and down to earth pottery.
This beautiful piece is blue grey like the Dutch skies, with traces of brown, like the new land the Dutch won from the water. To me it stands for the way we are, a sturdy, no nonsense people (I'm not fully Dutch, so I'm allowed to some nonsense). If you want to own a piece of our no nonsense mentality, head over to my shop.
