This is another pretty piece of Victorian Scottish pottery - made by Robert Heron & Sons / Methven Pottery, Kirkcaldy.
It is an attractive open serving bowl. It has tall sides and would be perfect for serving crisps or tortilla chips in. There is a little craquelure to the inside of the bowl - so it would be best for dry foods - or as a decorative item.
Dimensions: Overall height of the bowl is 4 inches. The diameter at the widest point is 6 1/2 inches. The foot diameter is 3 inches.
CONDITION: A lovely Scottish pottery spongeware bowl - no chips or cracks, This is no discolouration to the pottery body - as mentioned above it has a little bit of antique glaze crazing to the interior - this is a common occurrence on antique Heron and it is generally found on these old pieces.
Robert Methven Heron was the owner of the Fife Pottery in Kirkcaldy. He introduced a new pottery range called Wemyss Ware in 1882.
It is a fine piece of antique Scottish studio pottery.
It is certainly a very fresh hand-painted pattern. I have a number of pieces with this decoration on sale in my online store.
