GOUDA-DESIGN

Dedicated to collectors and admirers of Dutch Gouda Art Pottery & 20th Century Delftware

The original and finest site for all your Dutch Art Pottery information

The world number one web site in English on Dutch Art Pottery

 

 

 

The designs and colours of Gouda pottery are simply stunning as can be seen from these examples. They are a very small part of our collection.

We live in the County of Yorkshire here in the UK and warmly welcome Gouda collectors from wherever you live in the world.

The reason for this site is to share with you our love of collecting Gouda pottery. It contains a selection from our collection plus pictures, articles and information from collectors around the world. Some may not like the format but we made it to look and feel like a reference book with pages and an index (this page). We try to answer questions to the best of our knowledge but remember there is still a huge amount unknown about Gouda pottery. We neither claim perfection nor a closed mind.

We must mention the ceaseless support of our very dear and close personal friends from Gouda - Joop & Ria Nobel. With very special thanks to Ron Tasman and Friggo Visser for their unflagging continued help and support with many of our questions! Special thanks also to Hotze & Elly Barendse, Bert-Jan Baas, Patrick van den Berg, Peter & Trudie Bierens, Dick & Nel Bode, Nico van Eijk, Rick Erickson, Peter Cameron, Doreen & George Gallimore, Bert & Joke Holthuysen, Dennis van den Hoek & family, Egbert Hughes, Johan Karelse, Jan & Riet Peddemors, Phyllis Ritvo, David Tonge, Henk Veentjer, Barbara & René Walraven, Arlene & Lee Van de Wetering, Henk Wolffensperger & José van Bragt. Royal Goedewaagen & all the staff. Hans Vogels at MuseumgoudA in Gouda & all his staff. The staff at Royal Delft, in particular Jessica Wallien - van Erkel. Saskia van den Berg & staff from the Purmerend Museum. To all other museums in the Netherlands, here in the UK and all those people who have wished to remain anonymous - they are from all over the world - a big thank you.

Gouda has global interest. From photographs and questions you send, some magnificent pieces exist all around the world. We receive queries and photographs constantly and through our contacts have made some wonderful friends. Countries, Provinces & States, total of 148 at present, that have contacted us for information, accessed the site or sent pictures, can be found at this link.

Our collection began from a small vase inherited from Stuart's mother. It came from a glass and china shop where she worked in the 1920's and 1930's. Imagine the Art Nouveau and Art Deco pottery that must have been on display. If only we could travel back in time!

You know the saying about 'a bull in a china shop'. Well it seems the shop was across the road from an abattoir. One day in 1930 a bull escaped and blundered into the shop doorway causing some panic before being captured. Quite true - we can assure you!

No decor name on the base marks but we know it is 'Linote' - one of the classic PZH designs. Date is 1929. Slight chip on the rim. No idea if the chip was on the vase back in 1930 - perhaps it was the bull! Click image or here for details.
