I wasn't interested in pottery; my only interest was the fact that the vase was in the house. It just went from there. It's difficult to say why. Can you tell us a bit about the history of Gouda pottery?Lonsdale: There isn't a factory called Gouda pottery; the pottery is called that because the main factories were in Gouda. Gouda (pronounced ��how-da') is the generic term we use for all the pottery factories in Holland �C all Dutch pottery other than Delftware, that is. The area around Gouda had clay to make pots, which is why most of the factories settled there. A lot of the clay also came from England. The Dutch started producing clay pipes about 1740, and some of the factories that produced clay pipes turned to making pottery because there was demand. They didn't do it for love; they did it for profit. People wanted pottery for their home. This style of pottery was pioneered in about 1898 by a company called Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland, or PZH, but they didn't produce the type of pottery that you see on our website.
