Exceptional, circa 1920, Gouda Holland pottery rose bowl with gilt metal potpourri lid, in excellent condition. With a style that's very distinctive, the pattern is similar to Gouda's popular Agazi, Regina and Metz patterns of the 1920s, but I have as yet been unable to identify it. If you know, please let me know.
Its markings are typical of the PZH (Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland) pottery founded in the late 19th century in the town of Gouda in Holland. The 1876/7 at the top is the model, followed by the pattern name which I have tried to make out but cannot do so correctly. The little house in the middle could be said to be the logo; it represents the Gate of Lazarus which was the doorway to a 15th century leper infirmary in the town of Gouda. To the left of that is a dating mark, to the right are the artist's initials, none of which I can decipher. For a collector of Gouda, art pottery or 20th century pottery, it's a wonderful addition to a collection. 5 1/4" across at its widest, 3 3/4" opening at the top, 3 1/4" diameter at the base.
