    The Barlow Collection

    The deep U-shaped bowl has an low unevenly shaped, tapering foot and the sides are very slightly curved. The shallow domed cover has an everted rim and a short button-shaped knob. The bowl has firing cracks in the base and an unglazed rim and footring. The pale body has turned yellowish where it was exposed, the glaze is of highly glossy, somewhat greyish blue-green tone. The glaze of the cover is similar in colour but matt, the exposed body at the rim is more brownish, and the pieces may not originally have belonged together.
