Early Antique Majolica Bowl in Aqua with a Flower in the center. Before we go any further, this bowl has a repair on the rim. The chip was bigger on the back than on the front. It's not that noticeable, and I loved her anyway, but please only add her to your collection if you can love her too. This bowl has such wonderful colors!
Glorious aqua-green on the border, with little flowers and a scallop design. The center is a French basket weave, with a group of four green leaves and small light cream flower. Divine. This bowl makes it easy to see why everyone still falls in love with majolica. Quite old, the back has a hand sponged mottled finish, it is not marked as many of the early pieces were not. I was told it was French, but have not been able to confirm.
