Dutch, 21st century, in excellent condition

12 original, in excellent damage-free condition, Delftware Bols/KLM houses.

These miniature Dutch houses are issued to passengers flying KLM Business Class.
The houses are from the period that Bols made the houses. The ceramics of the series of houses from this period are particularly detailed, with dark blue roofs and therefore are also loved and sought after by many enthusiasts and collectors.

All sealed/filled, (with the exception of nos. 2, 28 and 87, ("Empty due to Customs regulations on this route")). On some flights, (especially to countries in the “Middle East”) KLM offered unfilled houses, in accordance with the regulations of the relevant destinations.
