Antique Hand Painted Floral Ironstone Footed Centerpiece Bowl from the 1800's. Rare to find, this large beauty has an elegant scrolling foot, the long ends of the bowl have a shell design on the handles. The inside as well as the four sides were decorated with hand painted enameled floral designs. The central purple flowers are primulas.
Quite early, there is some aging, the enameled leaves inside the bowl have wear as shown. There are tight hairlines on the bowl that have been there at least 100 years. Please only adopt this rare to find beauty with those gorgeous purple flowers if you love the grace of time.
