This large 9 1/2" diameter 'fruit' bowl was purchased in the 1960's by my mother at Lord & Taylor's in New York City. She used it as a centerpiece bowl for several years and was a family favorite all that time.
The bowl was made in Hong Kong exclusively for Lord & Taylor's and sold only through their stores.
It is in virtually mint condition. The heavy enamels easily handled the fruit it housed all those years! The turquoise blue ground is vibrant and the designs on it represent 'precious' objects.
I remember being told that the metal mount was made of pewter but its actual type is not known to me.
It is time to pass this piece to the next person who will love and preserve it for the next 50 decades!
