Based on his monogram it is likely from the early period that H Houdijck worked at PZH, so before May 1904. It is one of the few pieces of early P decor that is not branded "Made in Zuid-Holland", possibly because it was made for a special customer or occasion. The quality of the decor also points to an early date. The third argument is that the base colour is much whiter than the usual slight cream. Experiments with a more porcelain like clay are known from the period before 1904.
