This would make a wonderful center bowl. I can picture this piece full of fruit of fresh vegetables that are in season brightening up the kitchen. This bowl is octagonal in shape and is done in a beautiful gold pink basket weave. Yellow fruit or vegetables decorate four sides and green leaves on brown stems with soft yellow and white flowers decorate the other sides. The interior of this piece is the same awesome pink color. This piece was produced in Germany at the Zell factory; Georg Schmider was the potter. Zell is a well known and highly respected brand of German Majolica. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection.
