A Thursday Show and Tell from Poland


Boleslawiec, Poland is known for beautiful vibrant colored pottery. I am lucky to have received this piece from my youngest daughter and son-in-law from their last years' travels to Poland. 


The word Unikat simply means unique. The pottery pieces painted by original masters, sign their work. These pieces command a higher price and are very collectible.


The hand-painted fluted bowl on pedestal, was purchased at the Night Market in the Main Square of Old Town of Krakow, Poland. The photo above was taken while they were shopping.

In the background is the Cloth Market and the free-standing Town Hall Tower.


This is the inside of the Cloth Market after hours. 


Blue Daisies cover the inside of the bowl...I was thinking Ambrosia with big chunks of oranges would be perfect served in my bowl !

  1. Meggie, It's beautiful!! Yes, Ambrosia would be perfect! I love Polish pottery and have a couple of small pieces, although mine just come from a local import shop, not from a trip to Poland.

    1. I'm so in love with the colors, I may purchase some pieces through the internet. The colors are stunning. I'm so lucky, for they bring me something from every country they travel to each year.
