Lancaster & Sons (Ltd.), manufactured earthenwares at the Dresden Works, Hanley, in the heart of the Staffordshire Potteries, England, from 1900 until 1944. This bowl has an interesting yellow lustre exterior and interior highlighted by an extremely colorful scenic band. The design of the transfer decoration has a very Arts & Crafts feel to it. It consists of a cottage scene with sheep and a horse and rider repeated around the border. The mark on the bottom was in use from 1920 to 1930. It also has the factory number 7259. The bowl is 6" in diameter and approximately 2 1/2" tall. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or repairs. There are a few pin point specs off the trim and there are several white spot glaze skips on the inside bottom. Crazing is only apparent on the bottom. The artist left a few smudges including a partial finger print when applying the black trim. These blemishes do not seriously detract from this very charming example of vintage Hanley pottery.
