This is another nice example of antique English Wedgwood, 1930s vintage, in this case a rare original set of two matching creamware low bowls in the basket weave pattern. The bowls each feature the powder blue porcelain strands interwoven with the creamy white lattice like stems that fan out from the center of the bowls, and the bases are each marked with the stamped name of the company in green, stating: WEDGWOOD ETRURIA ENGLAND, MADE IN ENGLAND, and also t is the incised number 10RP37 to the right of the stamped maker's name on each of the bowls.
The pieces each feature a decorative stylized basket pattern design to the interior bowl portions respectively, and each measures approximately 2 1/4" in height, about 9 1/4" across in diameter, and approx. 4 1/4" across at the narrowed base including the portion ringed with the coiled blue border surrounding the white base. They're in excellent condition throughout with great lustre to the porcelain finishes, showing only minor crazing to each of the bases, and t is no evidence of damage, nicks, cracks, or repair.
