This is a lovely piece of mid century hand made pottery.
It is a lovely piece dating to 1963.
On stylistic evidence I am assuming that this might be Scandinavian in origin.
The base is a brownish / terracotta colour with little flakes or flecks through the clay.
The middle section - is glazed with a glossy black glaze and signed in blue: HS / 1963
The top of the shallow bowl has a very glossy black or midnight blue glaze - onto this is an abstract pattern of circles with radiating lines in a turquoise blue / purple colour.
The diameter of my lovely bowl or dish is 10 inches.
A lovely piece which would look great on a piece of low Scandinavian furniture perhaps on a teak coffee table as a decorative piece.
In excellent condition with no damages.
Given this is a one-off and unique piece dating to the early 60s - I would think that my asking price is a fair one for this attractive studio pottery piece.
