COALPORT INDIAN TREEOVAL VEGETBLE BOWL We are offering a vintage Coalport Indian Tree pattern oval vegetable bowl. This piece is open with the pattern in the "high verge" style or with the gold band part of the decoration being at the top of the side rather than toward the bottom. This bowl measures 9 in. long by 6-7/8 in. wide and 1-1/2 in. deep. which makes it very useful and versitile size. There are no cracks or chips and especially no crazing. The bowl has been carefully used but may have slight loss of gold in a couple of places. As pictured, the mark shows that this platter would have been produced in the period between 1891 and 1919. After that time a law passed that required imports' backstamp to include the country of manufacture along with the words "MADE IN". We have listed two companion bowls, this being the smallest of three making a neat nesting set. We hope you will take the time to look at them as well as a number of other hard to find Indian Tree items we have available. This vegtable bowl is both useful as well as lovely when just being displayed.
