This 19thc sponge ware bowl was purchased from a local estate in
Lighthouse Point, Fl who had a unique collection of Blue and White
Sponge Ware pottery. It was found by owner in Pennsylvania and is
in excellent condition. This very large bowl was probably a batter or
mixing bowl with a fantastic Clam Shell Decoration on a raised scalloped
all the way around. This type bowl is all hand painted and glazed. The shape
is very unusual and would be a perfect centerpiece for fruit on a table.
It has been on display in my own personal collection of sponge ware for the past
30 years. Never Used and in the same condition in which it was found.
Please view all the pictures and send an email if you have any
questions. I liquidate and buy from estates and private sellers, all
items are sold in as found condition.
I DO NOT CUSTOMIZE, REFINISH OR REPAIR.
Most of my items are ANTIQUE OR Vintage with patina, which adds
to the charm of the item, and will naturally show some wear from
age and use. I have endeavored to photograph and accurately
describe every item as to its condition and authenticity.
Photographs are part of the description.
