This is a vase. It was manufactured by Rozenburg Pottery and Porcelain Factory and painted by Samuel Schellink. It is dated 1900 and we acquired it in 1995. Its medium is porcelain, vitreous enamel. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

The decoration on Rozenburg porcelain was designed by a few master painters including Samuel Schellink, who is responsible for most objects in this case. His designs were applied in pencil and then other painters would complete the decoration. In 1900, there were 60 painters and 10 apprentices
working at Rozenburg
