Big and beautiful 19th Century slip glaze decorated large bowl from Spain. This 1840s bowl has a great blue tin glaze which is more of a country or slate blue and a Picasso style flower design (although Picasso was not yet born). The photos are true to color and this piece is in Good condition for its 180-200 years old.
This large earthenware bowl stands 3 3/4" tall and measures 12" across the top. It will work well with Farmhouse, Primitive, French Country and even American decors. This is one of several pieces of a New York estate collection we acquired a few years ago. This piece was labeled as "Early to Mid 19th Century Slip Glaze Earthenware Bowl with Flowers".
There are flaws associated with age and normal wear which we have photographed and pointed out for accuracy. We see no hairlines, cracks or chips. The spots you may think are chips, are loss of glaze only. These spots are smooth to run your fingers over. We see this along the rim with heavier discoloration. There are 3 tool marks at the very center of bowl where flowers are. This where the bowl was held for firing or glazing.
The bowl displays beautifully and we have some pretty good style matches to this bowl from the same collection - see our last photo. This listing is for ONE bowl, but if you are interested in the set of 5 we show in the last photo please contact me. We will discount and adjust shipping for you. They look so darn good as a display.
Thank you for shopping Small Business - be well and stay safe.
