Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Gouda, Holland, Arnhem Factory candleholder circa 1920.

Produced at the Arnhemsche Fayencefabriek (earthen-ware factory) in Holland. The factory founded in 1907 by Jacob and Klaas Vet. This Art Nouveau candleholder is the "Astra" or star pattern. It has the signature semimatte glaze with a pale blue background.

Measures 5.5 inches across and 2.5 inches tall. This piece has a couple of divits that were factory and have been glazed over. One is on the upper rim (see photo) and the other is on the bottom rim that it rests upon. Neither detract from the beauty or collectability of the piece. The colors are vibrant and excellent.

Marked under the glaze, by hand, on the bottom as follows;

A excellent addition to a Gouda collection or Art Nouveau pottery collection.
