This Original Delft Royal Goedewaagen trinket box was made exclusively for Museum Editions Limited. The box is decorated with traditional Dutch polychrome flower on the lid and along the side of the box. The box measures 5" by 3 ½" and is 1 ½" high. It is in excellent condition with no chips cracks or flaws. Here is some history on the makers of this box: In 1779, Dirck Goedewaagen becomes a part of an important ceramic pipe-makers guild in the city of Gouda. Tobacco, imported through the Dutch East Indies Company (VOC), is being smoked increasingly. Dirck's grandson, Pieter, also a pipemaker, will fall in love later with a daughter of the De Jong family and marry her. The De Jong Family had started the ceramic business in 1610, producing every day household items. This then lays the foundation for the Royal Goedewagen factory still in existence today.
