Catalogue Description:
Plain bowl. First quarter of handle is undecorated. Decoration begins with a stylized tripartite floral element and then an anthemion followed by a rectangular section trisected by a pair of parallel diagonal lines with a diagonal row of five molded dots between these lines and a small floret in each corner all against horizontal striations. Handle then flares to form a small tripartite projection with three scalloped tops. Each section contains a small-stylized flower on along stem all against more horizontal striations. Straight sides of handle then flare gradually to short round shoulders, which are topped by a semi-circular crest. Centered above the tripartite projection is a small five-leaf branch. Above this is a diagonal band with four diagonally quartered squares, each separated by a hollow dot all against a stippled ground. Above this to the right is a quarter sunburst with a meandering two-part branch with small flowers and leaves behind it that rises in the broad field at the end of the handle. Below the semi-circular crest that contains a sunburst is a stylized symmetrical tripartite flower in an inverted triangular area. The reverse has a similar but abbreviated decoration. Harvard Pattern. CONDITION - Good, slight overall scratching and minor plate loss on underside of tines.
