Large ESKAF Gouda Art Deco vase c1928
This is a stunning ESKAF Gouda Art Deco ceramic vase from around 1928.
This imposing vase was designed by Willem Van Norden. It has a slightly frothy glaze in brilliant colours on a black background. The ‘ear’ handles are a lovely feature, and hopelessly impractical.
ESKAF (Eerste Steenwijksche Kunstaardewerkfabrik) was based in Steenwijk. The factory was in business from 1919-1934. ESKAF pottery was designed in the belief that well-shaped and crafted vessels had an edifying effect … even if the pottery’s clientele was affluent.
