This Holland America Line vase stands 5" high by 3.5" in diameter. This vase has a classic bud vase form. According to 'Collectors Weekly' online, this vase was made by a company called “Aardewerkfabriek Fayence-en Tegelfabriek Holland” set up in Utrecht, Holland by Jan Willem Mijnlieff in 1894. The leaf and JM signature on the base represent the mark of Jan Mijnlieff. The Aardewerkfabriek Fayence-en Tegelfabriek Utrecht was part of a surge of art pottery production in the late nineteenth century in Holland that spawned some famous companies: de Wed. N.S.A. Brantjes en Co (1895, in Purmerend), De Distel (1895, in Amsterdam), Lotus (1896, in Watergraafsmeer), De Plateelbakkerij Delft (1897, in Amsterdam), and Zuid-Holland (1898, in Gouda). They were riding on the success of two major companies: de Porceleyne Fles (in Delft) and the famous de Haagse Plateelbakkerij Rozenburg (1883, in the Hague). Mijnlieff began his operation by employing three experienced painters and designers from Rozenburg: William Scherjon, Johannes Karel Leurs and Jan Karel Heijtze. A lot of the early production focused on tile production for the luxury interiors market with tiles designed by Jac. Van den Bosch for 't Binnenhuis. The factory ultimately produced work as special commisions and advertising items for business firms after the turn of the century. Holland America Line was one such company, for which they produced ceramic vessels during 1905-1906. The company closed in 1918. This vase is decorated in a rather masculine Art Nouveau style, with a chain link motif, along with the name 'Holland America Line', and the companys logo on the neckline. It is glazed in very handsome colors and finished to a high gloss. It is in factory mint condition, which is amazing for its age and intended purpose. This vessel presents very handsomely!
