James and Margaret from Yorkshire present their Gouda Collection Part 1.

Our interest in Gouda first developed when we inherited two pieces several years ago. On a visit to the Antiques for Everyone Fair at the NEC in Birmingham (UK) some seven years ago, our interest was further stimulated when we purchased the book "The World of Gouda Pottery". So we started our collection. In retirement and having the time to travel, we have been fortunate to find some interesting pieces. One of the most knowledgeable people we have had the pleasure of meeting on occasion, was Pieter Oosthuizen who had a business in London but has since retired to Florida. All the pieces shown here are from Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland.
