This is a wee pair of attractive Scottish pottery fruit bowls. Dating to the first half of the 20th century.
I have a larger bowl available in the same pattern.
I have a number of these smaller ones - which are listed as pairs.
I have given each pair a letter code - the ones in the images here - are the pair that will be sent. This is pair marked: L
The decoration is all hand-painted by Christina (Chrissie) Amour - as annotated with her initials on the base: C.C.A.
The interior of the bowl is hand-painted. There is a big peppermint green circular shape in the center - which has been painted with a large swirling brushstroke. There are long black lines - forming a pattern around - with on the white rim - there is a field of tiny little delicate flowers - painted in yellow, pink, peppermint, and royal blue shades.
The base of each bowl is undecorated with the natural colour of the clay.
Like many Bough pieces - the glaze that they used on the undecorated areas had a tendency to develop surface crazing. This remains true of these bowls - it is generally fine and unobserved on the inside - but the back has craquelure all over. It looks much worse in the images than in "real life"
Apart from the crazing, each bowl is in good condition with no chips or cracks.
Diameter: 6 1/4inches. Height: 2 inches.
Nice bowls - they are now harder to find. I am selling them priced at £25 for each bowl. Postage would be £4.95 for each pair. Multiple buys would see a capped postage at £10.
