Pottery and more
The museum is best known for the beautiful collection of Purmerend Jugendstil Pottery.
In the period 1895-1907 Purmerend was a center for the factory production of jewelery, an example of the arts and crafts. The pottery bakeries of Wed. NSA Brantjes & Co, NV Haga, Jb Vet & Co and and L. Huisenga made vases, sculptures, tile pictures and tableware by designers such as August Falise, Chris van der Hoef, Chris Lanooy and Henri Teixeira de Mattos. Also a great place to get to know more about the history of this market town between the Beemster, Wormer and Purmer polders.
