NOTES BY CLEO M. AND G. RYLAND SCOTT, JR IN THE LATE 1950’S
This underglazed blue and white bowl used in England for chestnuts or fruit is an unusually pretty example. It is copied from a Meissen piece. The mark is a crescent which is the most usual factory mark. The paste and gilt are particularly fine. The translucency is a deep green.
