Delchambre , Charlotte Jacoba

Born : Gouda, 19 April 1885

Worked at PZH from c. 1900 until Sept. 1914

Charlotte Jacoba Delchambre was born in 1885 in Gouda as a daughter of a policeman. She might have been totally forgotten as a ceramic painter at PZH but for the fact that researcher Dennis van den Hoek noticed something while going through the Gouda civil records in 2018. The entry for the Delchambre family stated the profession for Frederika Charlotta (well-known PZH decorator) as “ceramics painter” and on the line for her sister Charlotte Jacoba for profession a scribble that could mean “idem”! Further research gave a confirmation: when Charlotte Jacoba moved with her parents and sisters to The Hague in 1914, she registered there as “ceramic painter”. An indication that she had plied her trade pretty recently. There is no indication in the records that she was active as a decorator directly after the move, she appeared (as has her sister Frederika) to have worked as a domestic help until at least 1937. However, a piece from the 'Nieuw Rozenburg' factory (The Hague, 1919-1923) has come to light with a CD monogram identical to Charlotte Delchambre's PZH monogram. Considering the quantity, quality and dating of P décor pieces with the CD monogram it is for this collector a certainty that it is the monogram for Charlotte Delchambre, with a working period at PZH from c. 1900 to 1914.
