One of the attractions of this type of molded ware is holding it up to the sun to see the light passing through the delicate chrysanthemum pattern molded in the thin porcelain. This technique is in imitation of certain Chinese porcelain wares, and Worcester developed a very appealing product in the 18th century which has great appeal even today. This bowl is marked with the Worcester blue crescent. It is four and three-quarters inches across at the rim and is in excellent condition except for several tiny footrim chips.
