A fantastic set antique nesting bowls. A set of 4 ceramic bowls. Color reminds me of a minty green, with a cream clay.
Bowls measure from largest to smallest, 8 1/2" across & 5" tall, 7" across & 4" tall, 6" across & 3 1/2" high and smallest 5 1/4" across 3" high.
This is a wonderful set to use or add to your decor. In fabulous condition with just 1 chip on the edge of the largest bowl and smallest bowl, but have been used to the point where these are smooth and add a lovely touch to their age.
This is a hard to find set of 5 bowls, still together and ceramic aging to about 1910 or earlier.
From what I can find about the company, Clay City Pottery is one of the few family potteries still making traditional stoneware.
They have been making pottery for well over a hundred years. Now, the fifth and sixth generations of the Griffith family are working at the pottery.
The original Griffith family way of making the glazes, processing the local clays, and producing utilitarian stoneware is still in use today.
They use a method of forming the stoneware called "jiggering". It was adopted around 1900 and involves quite a bit of hands on work while preserving the look of traditional wares.
