This is a wonderful pair to us a decoration! The artist has painted the rims of the bowl and cup gold and outlined them in black. In between the golden insets on the rim he has painted variegated purple aster flowers with yellow centers. From one grouping of flowers to the other he has painted small leaves and flowers in a vine connecting the groups. The artist has added another outline golden band under the floral decorations. The artist “Firth” has signed both pieces. There are no chips, or cracks; manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
