Very stylish candle holder in a very pink colour and a textured relief
border decoration. The candle holder is from the famous Dutch ceramic
factory Velsen Pottenbakerij, marked to the base with the VLS mark,
nr. 352, Holland. The candle holder is in excellent condition.
Many ceramic factories were founded in 1920 and one of them was De
Kennemer Pottenbakkerij. In 1936 the name was changed into Velsen. After
bankruptcy in 1939 two former P.Z.H.-painters, Johannes G. van Vliet
and Leendert H. de Vrind restarted the factory in 1942. From that time
Velsen produced a good quality handpainted Delftware. The Velsen mark
was handpainted until the mid eighties when they switched to a stylized
printed mark. In 1993 the factory burned down and production of handpainted
delft was stopped.
