This is an attractive Scottish pottery large fruit bowl. Dating to the early 1920s.
The decoration is all hand-painted by Elizabeth Amour (her monogram is on the base).
The decoration is painted onto a blank - which has been supplied by an English pottery, as it has a Made in England stamp to the base. It was common in the early 20th century for small Scottish potteries to have white ceramics supplied and decorators would paint the decoration on the blanks.
This bowl has a grey coloured outer colour with a white ring running around - decorated with three little wine coloured stripes on sections of the band.
The interior of the bowl is decorated with large freely painted blue grapes and large leaves - it has a large loosely painted blue band on the interior rim. The glaze is nice and shiny and any white marks on my photographs are just due to reflections and are not on the actual bowl.
The bowl is in good condition for one nearly 100 years old - it has no chips or cracks.
Height: 4 inches. Diameter: 9 inches.
Lovely collectable piece of Scottish Pottery and in excellent condition with no damages of any kind.
