Google “wines of original certification”. That will give you the background of your wine bottle. From the little I know of this, these bottles have been associated with the Dutch East India Company and as Chinese export porcelain. The earliest VOC wine I am familiar with was in glass from around the first quarter of the 18th century. Someone else will need to identify origin and age of your vessel.

Thanks very kind. Unfortunately, I don't know who to take it to for certification, I don't think it's like coins. Thanks again for your message

The vase with VOC markings is one of the most faked of all Asian porcelain. The definitive answer can be found by going to Scroll down to the recent correspondence section where Mr. Nillson has been asked to comment on a collection of VOC marked objects. Your vase pops up in the photo section demonstrating fakes.

Sorry, I wasn’t clear. VOC in Czech is Vína originální certifikace which translates in English to wines of original certification. These wines were produced from “certified” vineyards. The wine “bottle” such as yours were used by the Dutch East India Company. Your bottle may have been made in China but I can’t say, and hopefully someone on the forum can give you better information on when and where it was made. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
