This item is a ruffle edged bowl with pretty hand painted decoration. The bowl is 2 1/4" deep by 6" in diameter. The top edge is a rich brown color that blends to various earth tone colors as it goes to cream in the center of the bowls bottom. The decoration is a thistle in bloom with three buds and leaves and stems. The bottom is marked with am "M" in a wreath with "Hand Painted" above and "Nippon" below it. There is some wear on the rim consistent with age, but there are no chips, cracks, or decoration wear. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to make an offer.
