    I have this little container 5" tall x 3 1/4" square.
    I do know the date code is for 1962. The other is the painter i think?
    And the third is numbers? There is no damage other than the crazing is over the entire piece. It cost me $5.00 all i need to know is if i could make a profit?

    One of a set of 'canisters'? Profit-wise, I can't answer, but I always love the blue & white!!!

    Van Hook's book on Delftware says that the de Porcelyne Fles 3-4 digit number is an internal number. Before 1985 it was a kiln number, after 1985 it's a catalog number.

    He has the initials of many known and unknown artists though doesn't show yours.

    Value? Probably look at very recent sales. Once upon a time I used to track Fles sale prices. (15 +/- years ago?). At that time, generally speaking, they seemed to bring 1/3 - 1/2 of the price in the catalog if in perfect condition. I don't know about now.

    Just as an aside, Fles is often crazed, need to mention but not unusual.
