Antique and very rare hand painted WWI military bowl made by Grimwades. This piece is from an important time in English and World history. An absolutely beautiful bowl with green leaves all around the border, a crest and the following printed in the middle:
"Special Message From The RT Hon. D. LLoyd George. Prime Minister. 'I have no hesitation in saying that economy in the consumption & use of food in this country is a matter of the greatest possible importance to the empire at the present time."
On the back of the bowl the following is printed:
"Made by the girls of Staffordshire during the winter of 1917/18 when the 'boys' were in the trenches fighting for liberty & civilization."
This is a very special bowl, and is in good condition considering it is 94 years old. There are no chips or cracks, but some scratches on a part of the crest.
