The bottom half of the bowl's side is in white while the top half which is separated from the bottom by a raised portion (the belt around the waist) is colored with a light pink or purple luster coloring which also colors the edge of the wide rim. The inside of the bowl is decorated with a colored transfer depicting two circus clowns in the circus ring and there is also a pig dressed in a short jacket standing on his hind legs and holding a walking stick. The transfer shows great details and beautiful colors, it is very nicely done. Please view photos as they are part and parcel of our description.

Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a beautiful antique with nice and unusual decoration that is in great shape.
Condition: The bowl is in great excellent condition. It has no chips, cracks, breaks or repairs. It does have some scratches as well as quite a bit of color loss both to the luster and to the transfer. There is also a spot behind the pig's back right at the top of the circus' ring which is dark in color and forms a perfect circle with a central depression. We are uncertain what it is but appears to be original to the piece. Be that as it may, this old bowl is beautiful, solid and would make a great addition to your collection.
