For your consideration is a lovely earthenware serving bowl in the Ivy pattern. It was made in the U.S.A. by Franciscan China Company. This 8" round serving bowl features light and dark green ivy leaves on a cream background. The bowl has a 1949 to 1953 back stamp. Collector's called this mark "half moon mark".
There is one tiny nick on the side of the bowl, which is so small it is not noticeable. They missed a couple of spots on the green trim when painting the top of the bowl. See the pictures for more details.
