This bowl with lid has strong coloration. It is an early nineteenth century piece. On the bowl we see bold designs - semicircles in shades of cobalt, each decorated with a single flower. Between the semicircles are cobalt leaves. There is an applied handle with a shell "fastener" on each side. The lid has scalloped areas separated by a variety of leaf designs. The finial is capped with cobalt. The interior of the bowl shows some brown spotting. There is a glaze fleck with a light brown circle around it where the bowl narrows. The lid has a small chip on the rim which may have been a firing flaw (it appears to be glazed). The inner rim of the lid has some rough spots. The bowl is 4.75 inches in diameter and, with finial, 5.25 inches high.
