Gouda Vase Archipel decoration Holland

It is likely that this small Gouda vase was made at
the Plateelbakkerij Zuid-Holland. 

The decoration is called 'Archipel'. 

Although the marks underneath do not appear to include the decorators mark, another example of 'Archipel' which seems to be by the same hand, has been attributed to Cornelis Christiaan (Kees) Kalmeijer (KK mark), and dated 1917.

The marks to the base include:
(possible decorators partially obliterated mark)
(two inscribed marks - a back slash over perhaps a small C)

For a hundred year old pot it is in good condition, with only a small nibble to the top rim, and another to the base (see photos), otherwise there is little wear to this thrown and painted piece.

I have searched for other examples of 'Archipel' but have found very few.

Height 80mm
Diameter 60mm

All serious offers considered.
