Earliest Gouda decors 1898-1899
Based on the number of objects in the different decor types it appears the Poppy-based decors were the first Gouda decors that came on the market. They can be very expressive and appear hallucinogenic-inspired! The second most common are the Sunflower decors, but unlike the Poppy decors, they almost disappear after 1899. We find the first decor with Tulips, which remains a popular decor type after 1899.
