Gewi vase ?

Factory: Gewi (?)
Dimensions: Height 20cm
Pattern name: Unknown - (picture of Butterfly [Vlinder])
Artist: Unknown
Date: Around 1980
Comments: This beautiful cream coloured vase, featuring a butterfly (vlinder) in relief has a very plain backstamp "Gouda Plateel" in a rather modern looking font, without any other indication of its origin.
It was thought to have been made by Gewi which existed only a few years around 1980. Gewi was a company inspired by the Art Nouveau years and tried to give the handpainted decors a new lease of life.
