Rich chocolate glaze completely engulfs the medium yellow base while tulips are embossed into the middle of the bowl. Measuring 10" in diameter and 3.5" deep, the bowl is considered to be a nappy which was then used as the base form for a mold. Rockingham molds are scarce, and ones created from nappies are even more so.
Highly detailed tulips on stems are embossed in the base which then create a pleasing illusion when this is actually used as a mold. Today, these are used for butter or even cakes. When originally produced in the 1860's, these molds were used for pudding.
Given the coloration and evenness of the glaze, this mold was mostly produced by the East Liverpool, Ohio, pottery company responsible for producing the various sizes of pitchers with the same tulip design. No other design has been seen in molds of this form.
Perfect addition for your rockingham collection and sure to be a conversation piece.Dimensions:
