  • For a long time, Royal Goede- waagen was one of Europe's largest producers of clay pipes.

  • For once, the focus is not on our beautiful Art Nouveau and Art Déco collection, but on 10 very special objects produced by the Royal Goedewaagen pottery factory in the past year during the National Museum weekend of Saturday afternoon 5 and Sunday afternoon 6 April. Often these are artists' designs for very special occasions. The commissions executed reflect in an art-historical perspective the more than 400 year old craft tradition of the 8 factories that merged into the Goedewaagen concern.Hand-turned and often personalised urns that in terms of potter's craftsmanship are in line with the production of the Gouda Star of 14 May 1612. Newly designed Orange pipes, also a result of centuries of Gouda clay pipes. Tile tableaux as with the Amsterdam Distel or experimental tableaux in the line of Goedewaagen-Distel. Contemporary design as prevailing at Flora Plateel and of course highly sought after miniatures, a specialisation of Goedewaagen from January 1932 onwards. read more "
