This is a really nice #4 Watt Pottery mixing bowl in the Starflower pattern. The bowl is a yellow color and is hand decorated with one large red starflower and two green leaves. It is marked Watt, U S A, Oven Ware and has the number 04 on the bottom. This pattern was first introduced during the early 1950’s.
It has crazing which is expected due to age. It has some manufacturing imperfections which are normal with a handmade pottery item but is in overall good condition. The bowl is really quite nice and would make a nice addition to a collection or a great decorative item for the kitchen.
The bowl measures approximately 2” in height and 4” in diameter.
Watt Pottery started business during 1922 when family member purchased the Globe pottery in Crooksville, Ohio. They initially produced stoneware jars, jugs, milk pans, mixing bowls, churns, preserve jars and chicken waterers, Their early pieces were marked with their Trademark Acorn. During 1935 the company discontinued making these items and began focusing on hand decorated kitchen and ovenware items such as banded and decorated mixing bowls, spaghetti bowls, canisters, covered casseroles, nappies, cookie jars, ice buckets, pitchers, handled French casseroles, bean pots, salad sets and dog dishes. Buff colored pieces were hand decorated with bold brush strokes of red and green. Sadly, the Watt Pottery was destroyed by fire October 4, 1965.
