Up for auction is this Very Early Antique Portneuf Spongeware Pottery/Ceramic Bowl. The pattern is floral and hand painted with large red and small blue flowers with green leaves around the outer perimeter. In the center is a large 13 point purple/lavender star with 2 red circles in the center. Around the extreme outer perimiter is a band of purple/lavender color. The condition of the bowl is the best that I have ever seen for this type of Portneuf Spongeware. T are no stains, damage or repairs, just all over crazing from age. In the center of the bowl you will also find 3 tiny asmade dimples made by the form that was used to hold the bowl in the kiln. The bowl measures 9 1/2" in diameter and 1 1/8" in height. Superb piece of early Portneuf Spongeware. Supersized pictures are also part of the description. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
