This bowl is an early 1912 issue of this famous Royal Doulton Series. The 1912 Shakespeare series had a polychrome background. Items produced after 1914 have a sepia background. The interior of the bowl has a wispy blue grey and rust colored interior as well as exterior. The outside of the bowl is encircled with trees. The edges have a dark green trim. Orlando the character from "As You Like It" is in the center of the bowl. The bottom is marked "Orlando" and has a faded Doulton factory mark as well as a very faint number D3596. The bowl is 8 1/4" in diameter and is 3 3/4" tall. It is in excellent condition overall. There are no cracks, chips, stains, or repairs. Note however that the entire surface is crazed. Nonetheless, this is a stunning 100 year old piece of Royal Doulton. We are offering free shipping for our U.S. clients. Shipping and insurance for others will vary by location.
