The bowl is in excellent condition with only a couple of very minor scuff marks and carries clear factory marks to the base.

FYI: Over 500 years ago Chinese potters first experimented with copper oxide glazes to create a fiery red finish that became known as `flambe'. The Royal Doulton Company exhibited their wares in 1904 at the St. Louis Exhibition.
