Offered for your consideration we have a multi-tone green 1951 California Pottery avant-garde modern shaped pottery bowl/dish. Some say it resembles a cloud, others an amoeba – I thought it was a continent at first glance.

Marked on the bottom: “California 51 © 295”

The ladies at the church bazaar where I purchased it were considering using it for snacks by filling it with guacamole and cherry tomato halves if it didn’t sell!

It measures approx. 11 ½” x 8 ½” x 2”.

As with any 60+ year old pottery, there is some light crazing to the glaze, some flecks from the factory and a ¼” chip to the bottom footed edge (unseen unless turned upside down).
