A large wedgwood black basalt engine turned bowl decorated around the outside with a simple band of chevrons at the top, and a band of wide vertical cuts below that. The vertical cuts are wide and deep enough that you can see the texture of the material. Interior designers
have often recommended that you have something black and something red in a room.
This bowl filled with pine cones, green apples, or lemons will enhance a room.
Black Basalt was created by Josiah Wedgwood in the 18th century. Wedgwood transformed Egyptian black, a traditional Staffordshire stoneware, into Wedgwood Black Basalt. Before Wedgwood’s innovation the English potters used material found in the ground around local coal deposits to make Egyptian black. Wedgwood used this native material but added manganese to obtain a much richer black for his Black Basalt.
The bottom of the bowl has an impressed "Wedgwood" mark.
Dimensions: 10.25" diameter x 4.5" tall
Condition: Excellent
Price: $1800
