|The three little marks in the shape of a triangle are from the support unit that held the bowl off the floor of the kiln during firing.|
|There is a chip in the bottom edge where the glaze has popped off but as long as it doesn't sit in water should not affect the usage of the bowl.|
The bowl measures roughly 11" across and is about 4-1/2" high. This is only my second piece of American made ironstone so I had to do a little research. The CC Thompson Pottery Company was located in East Liverpool, Ohio. This mark indicates that the bowl was manufactured between 1867 and 1893. I found one on line (in better condition) that was being offered for sale at $135. Even with the condition issues, I think my bowl was a steal at $5!
