Suze Boschma-Berkhout Bartje Bartels Small Pottery Figurine

I think this little white pottery figurine of the famous Dutch Boy, Bartje Bartels, is adorable! The statuette is based on the design of both a limestone statue and a bronze statue located in Assen, Drenthe, Netherlands. Both are dedicated to ‘Bartje’ and sculpted by the Dutch sculptress, Suze Boschma-Berkhout in the 1950s.

Suze Berkhout & Bartje

I’m not sure of the manufacturer of this small figurine, but this piece will have been produced as tourist ware. We believe it probably dates to about the 1960s/70s. He would look great gracing any desk, mantlepiece or shelf!

Approximate size
Height: 19cm (head to base)
Width: 8cm
Depth: 7cm

He’s in lovely condition, with no chips, cracks or restoration. It does have some manufacturing flaws e.g. flow lines and black specs.

The front of the base is imprinted with ‘Bartje’ and the rear with something I can’t read but the wording ends ‘Berkhout.’
