This is a cute little hand-painted piece of early 20th century Bough pottery.
It takes the form of a little miniature sugar bowl. It is fully marked to the base, as photographed. The maker's initials are RA - for Richard Armour.
This little bowl is probably a little blank of this earthenware vase which was made by Maling and Sons, Newcastle-on-Tyne, and used by Bough Pottery.
The decoration features the attractive stylised flowers that you find on Bough pieces. There is a band of bright sunshine yellow to the top. Around the exterior of the bowl, there are three separate posies of pink, yellow and purple flowers.
CONDITION: In good condition for a Bough jug now almost 100 years old - with no chips or cracks. There is no staining inside the bowl.
Dimensions: Height: just over 2 1/4 inches. The diameter at the top is just over 3 1/4 inches.
Bough Pottery was founded by Elizabeth and Richard Amour in the 1920s. They specialized in decorating blanks - which they bought in from pottery companies in England and Scotland (many from Maling Pottery, Newcastle).
This small display piece is in good condition with no chips or cracks.
