Verwoerd Ceramics Online   


Have you got a question on Delft medallions? Do you want to make a comment on the content of this site? Do you want to use any of the copyrighted material? Please feel free to contact our helpdesk.

We may be able to help you establish whether your piece is hand painted and a genuine Verwoerd, and give an indication of its relative scarcity. If it is by another factory, does the maker feature in our Delft Signatures Guide or in The Gouda Pottery List? We do not provide fiction. If we don't know, if further research is necessary, we will simply say so.

Do not send us any items. It may be sufficient when you present sharp pictures of the face and the reverse of the medallion, eventually showing the "Delfts" signature. If the pictures are blurred or too small we may not be able to identify the item. You may also want to add the diameter, or the length and width of the medallion in millimeters (not counting the silver setting) or the equivalent in inches. We would also appreciate a first name to reply to. Please send your request to helpdesk at verwoerdceramics dot com.

We provide our information free of charge, but we are not purchasing consultants and cannot answer questions about items on eBay or similar sites. Please contact our helpdesk before you list your item. We regret that we cannot give any valuations, estimates, or insurance values.
