It's an odd item for an insurance company to offer as a gift or advertising premium, but here is a small (cereal?) bowl from Metropolitan Life Insurance, New York. It is made and marked by Wood & Sons, England; "Vitrified Acme China." It sports red and green accent bands around the outside, along with the Met. logo and curious sculptural ear handles on opposing sides in the form of a somewhat female profile. Condition is overall good. One small chip on edge of the ring foot at bottom; shows light wear on the high points of the handles; typical glaze crazing is minor. Dimensions: 4.5 inches diameter and 3 inches tall. The mark places this piece approximately 1907 - 1920.
More photos gladly and questions always welcome.
