You might not know this, but I love my vases. Not the big ones, but the small ones. About 10-12cm (4-5 inches) high. When I was last in the Netherlands I scored a little vase. It looked a bit like Delft Blue, the most famous type of Dutch pottery, but it wasn't.
Yesterday I decided I would go trawling through some second hand shops. Trying to find some more vases or perhaps a figurine or a nice small (glass) plate.
I came away in the end with a little vase. Made in Delft as well. Only 20 kroners (about 2 British pounds, 2,5 euros, 3 dollars?). Once at home I tried to find out a bit more. Was it really Delft Blue? It was. And when was it made? Well, after a bit more detecting and deducing, I believe the cx at the right of the main stamp suggests 1978. It may not be antique, but I am pleased nonetheless.
