Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Alba China Italian Hand Painted

Large Antique Wash Bowl

Item Number C03403

I only wish I had the pitcher that once went with this dazzling bowl!  The shaggy mums are hand painted over glaze and remain in exquisite condition given it's 125+ years of age.  The colors are vivid hot pinks, yellows and greens on a cream ironstone bowl.  The lip of the bowl has raised detail that was once painted in gold and has long since been rubbed off from use.  This piece is in extraordinary condition for it's age.  It is heavily crazed and has two insignificant stress line areas and a tiny chip on the bottom which does not show.  Leave it to the Victorians to bring exceptional beauty to such a simple utilitarian piece!    17" X 5"  c.1860 - 1880's
