Gouda (pronounced "How-da") is a Dutch city some 35 miles south of Amsterdam. It is best known for its famous cheese. But it did have another highly-recognizable craft export: hand-painted art pottery. Shown above, a small two-handled pot with hand-painted blue morning glories. It was made in (and is dated) 1923 and more can be learned about it by clicking on the photo above.
