how do i begin to describe the awesomeness of this large pedestal bowl from the Brayton line of Laguna Beach and California Potteries?

This is a lovely version of the 2-tone glaze finish. the inside is a semi-gloss black glaze, and the outside is a concrete-like, textured off-white glaze. the outer glaze is in good condition, but it is very delicate. one brush against a hard surface will mar the glaze. there may be a couple of spots like this, but you can't really tell since the surface is already irregular. so it's a bonus! the only issue with the finish is that it tends to hold onto dust and dirt. if you look at the close ups, you can see that there are little darker bits here and there. the base appears SLIGHTLY darker than the rest of the body, but this is me being a perfectionist and scrutinizing the piece. again, it doesn't really distract from the look. i didn't want to do too much cleaning of this piece since i am unfamiliar with the care of this type of glaze. i like it as it looks.

unfortunately, there is a chip on the edge of the inside. you can clearly see this represented in the photos. when viewed at the right angles, you can't even see it. this is a beautiful piece, and this doesn't distract from the beauty, just the value.

the bowl itself is about 9" at its widest. the inside diameter is about 8 1/8". the base is 4 3/4" across, and the bowl stands 5 3/4" tall. it is an eye-catching size for sure. shipping includes insurance.

let me know if you have any questions!
