Beach pottery shard - identifying from letters stamped into base?

by LHS
(Papua province, Indonesia)

I have found another shard on the same beach as the one referenced in my previous inquiry, and was wandering if anyone had any insight into how I might identify this piece based on the pattern, and on the letters indented into it's underside, a larger "F" and a smaller "A N".

The previous big shard I found here was certainly dutch, which makes sense as the islands where I live used to be dutch colonial territory.

I would be so delighted to hear from anyone who can share any insight
With kind thanks
