Hard to Find Berry Strainer!! This old beauty sits on three scrolled legs and has a six lobed shaped body. The underside of the dish has a creamy background and the inside of the bowl has a nice black matte finish. Holes in the bottom of the bowl allow the berries to be washed and drained. Three cartouche designs have been painted on alternating lobes. Within the cartouches a landscape scene has been hand painted. On the other lobes a small pinkish rose is painted. Raised relief around the inside rim had at one time gold lines accenting but is now partially worn off. The bowl definitely has been used but is still in very nice condition for it’s age. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
