This hand painted rare and collectible rectangular dish could be a pin dish or as this style in the catalog of De Porceleyne Fles is referred to, a sweet dish. It is decorated with beautiful flowers in the colors of white, yellow and some red sitting in a black background. The Black Scratch Technique is far less common and a small item like this for example, in the "Royal Delft a guide to De Porceleyne Fles" by Rick Erickson is listed as having a value of $125.00.
The design of Black Scratch is delftware that was only made from 1957 to the mid 1960's. Production was very expensive and therefore quite limited. Also the hallmarks are black instead of blue.
3-3/4-in Long, 2-1/2-in Wide, 5/8-in Tall. The Royal Delft marks are on the back with CL for the date code, 1967 along with the initials Y.HD for the painter, a woman, W.Y. Hoogers who worked at the factory from 1965-1982. Excellent condition other than some mild crazing which is not unusual for older delft.
