Pretty porcelain china serving bowl in a ridged and embossed seashell shape by Blue Ridge China Southern Potteries. The hand painted pattern is called Nove Rose, with pink rosebuds, yellow and pink tulips, tiny blue flowers, and green leaves.
The bowl measures a little over 9" by 9" and is 1-3/4" deep. The underside rim edge has 3 tiny chips, oddly all of them appear to be underglaze, having occurred during manufacture. You cannot see the chips from the side or top, you have to turn the bowl over, and even them you'll feel them before you see them as they're glazed and color consistent with the porcelain body. I've shown an enlarged, sharpened picture of the two largest. Otherwise the dish is in excellent condition, no scratches, crazing, or other problems. The underside is marked "Blue Ridge China, Hand Painted Underglaze, Southern Potteries Inc. Made In U.S.A."
Specializing in antique and vintage Christmas all year round, plus antique to Mid-Century copper.
