moreThis bowl is "California Majolica" and really is quite a stunner! It is commonly referred to as crackleware, as the "crackles" are part of the design and not signs of the glaze being compromised. The hand-painted tree is so nicely done and balanced on the bowl front. The colors are just as vivid as the day it was made! And it is the crackle and the colors of this bowl that make me smile - every time I look at it!
It was made by Hartman Studios of Los Angeles, and although I have searched in vain for more information on this company, I date this bowl to the 1940's-1950's. The early and mid-twentieth century eras saw a proliferation of potteries in California and Hartman Studios was one of thousands, some of which were in business for only a short time. I would enjoy knowing more about this company.
In the interest of full disclosure I have included two photos of the rim where small "dings" have occurred during its life. However, given its age and history the bowl is in excellent condition.
Your bowl will be packed with the utmost care to travel to your address. less
