Offered for purchase is a beautiful American Satsuma Arts & Crafts Floral Motif Bowl (Signed "M.M.K."/Dated 1915). The design for this bowl is by Maud Mason and is found in the July 1912 edition of Keramic Studio Magazine. Keramic Studio Magazine was a monthly publication for the amateur porcelain/china decorator which provided designs, detailed instructions on porcelain/china decorating, as well as articles and photographs of competitions and displays between various china decorating studios and clubs. The magazine was first published in May 1899 and continued into the late-1920’s. We can provide photocopies of the page from the publication with the design of this item with your purchase if specifically requested.
The bowl is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some surface scratches and wear from age and use. Typical with American Satsuma, there is general crazing and some darkening of the porcelain. The bowl is approximately 6 inches in diameter and 3.25 inches tall. The bottom is marked as indicated in the pictures.
