Avis Yuni Antiques & Collectibles

Manufacturer: Watt Pottery
Vintage pottery or ceramic cereal bowl with outer hand painted decor of a red apple and green leaves. This is believed to be an older Watt Pottery piece from some internet research. It is impressed marked on underside base with "Oven Ware U.S.A. #74" which is believed to have been used by Watt Pottery. The company also included the Watt name in their markings on larger pieces, but believed to not do so on the smaller ones.

This is a low bowl, measuring 2 inches in height, round with a top diameter of 5 1/2 inches. The apple pattern appears hand painted on the outside of one side with the remainder of the bowl a medium tan or cream color, inside and out (there is no pattern on the interior of this bowl). This vintage pottery piece weighs about 9.3 ounces unpacked.

We've provided 8 images including close-ups. Since the camera lighting causes white "hot spot" reflections on the smooth glazed surfaces, we've also included some images without the camera light. These will appear darker than what you will see in person, but they also allow you to see detail that is less obvious when the camera light is used. Please use the zoom feature to examine closely.

Very nice overall vintage used condition with evidence of age/wear. This piece was used and is not mint, but could still be used or displayed well.

You can see in the images that along the outer base and on/near the base rim there are some flat flakes/chips. There are no cracks on this piece or large chips. Along the upper outer rim there are also several very tiny dot low flakes/chips from handling/use, as to be expected with pottery. The hand painting is bright and colorful, but with a glaze pop near one of the leaf lower edges (you can see this in the images), two tiny dots/paint flake dots on the apple, and other pin/pit dots, rubbed wear, etc. on the painting. Elsewhere the pottery has pin/pit dots, a raised extra pottery spot on the interior as made, some light scratches on the interior but not bad at all, exterior dots/pin/pit dots, scratches, wear spots, etc. on the cream colored areas.
