Mystery Pottery Bowl
What I know about this blue and brown pottery bowl is very little. I can say that I didn't pay very much for it and that I enjoy displaying it. The bowl is rather shallow and is larger than a dinner plate...about 14 inches in diameter.
The unusual color combination and technique is what caught my eye. It appears to be a similar style to speckle ware, except for the outside edge. The finish is a very nice smooth glaze.
My guess would be that the first spattered color of blue was applied. Then, the dark brown color was added around the edge, allowing it to run into the first color.
The only marking on the bottom is the number 28.
Show and Tell is always fun for me. Do you have any idea where this bowl might have been made?
