This is a pretty little piece of vintage Scottish studio pottery.
It was made by the Scottish potter, Barbara Davidson and dates to the early 1970s when she established her own pottery in Larbert.
Her work has always featured pretty stoneware bowls decorated with abstract designs relating to the sea, sky or shoreline.
Her pottery was founded in 1969 - to this piece must date to just after this time.
Barbara was brought up in Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland, and in 1964 attended Glasgow School of Art.
One of her largest commissions was a larger ceramic mural measuring some 7 feet in length and 4 feet in height - this can still be seen in the Ladies Waiting Room at Queen Street Station in Glasgow.
This is a particularly lovely little shallow bowl by Davidson - with a fine abstract pattern, slightly reminiscent of works by Alan Caiger-Smith.
It is 5 inches in diameter - and 1 1/4 inches in height.
With original paper label and potter's stamp on the base.
