In the mid-1880s Rozenburg, a pottery in The Hague, began production of a new range of wares with highly decorative floral patterns. These were immensely popular and other factories rushed to capitalise on the new style. In 1903 the Purmerend factory of Jb.Vet & Co. followed the fashion. While, initially, Rozenburg's production was expensive, others like the Purmerend pottery's wares were much less so and in time their commercial success forced Rozenburg into less expensive production too.
