condition: like new
$10 each; $15 for the pair. Nice gift. Around 50 years old, yet like new.
To all appearances, these seem to be made by the same manufacturer; indeed, a set. Yet while both are marked that they're made in Holland, they have different names, and it appears that perhaps the ceramic plaques themselves were made in England. Or vice versa. Very attractive and detailed. Both are 6 inches high and 4 inches wide.
1. De Kaasmarkt (cheese market), Anno 1900. On reverse, H and R Johnson Ltd, stamped "P S[?] Delft/Handmade/Holland"
2. De Botermakerij (butter factory), Anno 1900. On reverse H/Made in England, stamped "plateel bakkerij/schoonhoven b.v/holland/de pottebakker"
