    Your vase was made by the Dutch company de Porceleyne Fles (Royal Delft). The impressed JT&L is for Joost Thooft & Labouchere, Joost Thoof was an owner and Abel Labouchere was a partner who became owner after the death of Thoof. The impressed mark of JT&L started being used around 1884-1890 and ended before 1916.

    Usually there is a date code letter mark which would be one or two letters most likely the ones on the right but I can't make them out. The letters on the left seem to be the initial marks of the artist Lambertus ten Dam G.N.who was an artist at Fles from 1890-1918 so that fits.

    If the date then would fall between 1890 and 1916, the letter code would be a single letter from L-Z or double letters AA-AL. They simply add the next letter of the alphabet so once they reached Z in 1904 they started over with double letters of AA, AB so AL is 1916.

    Most of this info is from "Discovering Dutch Delftware" by Van Hook.

    Thanks Bakersgma.
    I usually don't pay much attention to delft ware probably because most of what I see is recent. The older pieces seem to be much better executed.
    There is a chip on the rim that has been glued back but I still like it.

    Well, the 180 would be the kiln number and the initials on the left look like the artist I mentioned before (I think) but those on the right look quite a lot like another master designer who was slightly later (at least from the book reference). I have no idea what that bottom symbol might be unless it's an L or something. Sorry.
