These are more pretty pieces of Victorian Scottish pottery - made by Robert Heron & Sons / Methven Pottery, Kirkcaldy. 

On offer here is a pretty pair of non-matching open serving bowls. They have has tall sides and would be perfect for serving nuts or wee nibbles with evening drinks. 

Thye both have floral patterns - the bowls are slightly different in size - and the floral pattern on each is also slightly different. But as a wee pair they are certainly very attractive. 

There is a little craquelure to the inside of the bowls - so they would be best for dry foods - or as decorative items. The body of the pottery has also slightly discoloured - and this often happens with Methven pottery of this time - but it doesn't look dirty - but the colour has changed from a white shade or more of a light beige one. 

There are no disfiguring chips or cracks - so generally fine antique condition - they are probably about 140 years old now.  They are priced accordingly to take all this into consideration. Pricing the larger one at £25 and the smaller one at £20 - a fair price for Scottish antique spongeware pieces. 

Dimensions: The larger bowl has an overall height of 3 inches. The diameter at the widest point is 4 1/2 inches. The foot diameter is 2 3/4 inches. 

The smaller bowl has an overall height of 2 1/2 inches. The diameter at the widest point is 4 1/4 inches. The foot diameter is 2 inches. The smaller bowl is the one with the big pink daisy-type flowers on it.

Code FF and FF

Robert Methven Heron was the owner of the Fife Pottery in Kirkcaldy. He introduced a new pottery range called Wemyss Ware in 1882.

These are certainly fine pieces of antique Scottish art pottery that have very fresh hand-painted spongeware patterns. I have a number of pieces with this decoration on sale in my online store. 

The price to post in the UK will be £4.95 - this is with Royal Mail 2nd Class Recorded and applied to your order at checkout. 

If you would like more than one of my Heron / Methven items - I can cap multiple purchases at £10 in the UK.
