Product Description

It is my pleasure to offer you this vintage Art Nouveau Vase produced by DISTEL AMSTERDAM.
Plateel- and Tile-bakkerij De Distel (1895-1925) ranked by 1910 in the very top echelon of Dutch plateel factories. Its tiles not only graced numerous buildings but its elegant vases and pottery adorned homes all around the world. Founded in 1895 by Jacobus Lob (one of the leaders in the Dutch ceramic scene), by 1899 the company was already participating in national fairs and exhibitions. After 1902 its matte white plateel -of Bert Nienhuis in particulary- was resounding to a chorus of wide acclaim.
De Distel's strength lay in the fact that unlike Rozenburg or Brantjes its producton was not just for the Happy Few, but was also aimed at a wider public. After Bert Nienhuis left in 1911 Mr. Lob managed to attracted an number of trendsetting designers (C.A. Lion-Cachet, Jan Eisenloeffel, Theo Nieuwenhuis), but when he got a huge inheritance in 1920 he decided to sell the company to Goedewaagen and production moved to Gouda in 1923.

The designs of Jan Eisenloeffel were mainly inspired by Mid-Eastern shapes. His decorations were simple and contained dot-embedded ornaments combined with lined and dotted ribbons.
This vase is an example of his refined and balanced designs.

AGE: 1910-1915

DIMENSIONS: Height is 9 inches = 19.5 cm. Widest diameter is 4.5 inches.

CONDITION: EXCELLENT. This vase shows the normal crazing but is in PERFECT condition. No cracks, chips, flakes or any other flaws. A real treasure for any Quality Dutch Art Nouveau Collection.
