"Creekmore Fath had suggested the possibility of such a bowl with Thomas Hart Benton and was scheduled to visit him in the spring of 1975 to discuss the bowl along with other projects when Benton suddenly died in January, 1975. The bowl project lay dormant until Fath visited the Wedgwood works at Barlaston, Stoke on-Trent England, in 1982 and the project was revived."
Original retail on the bowls was over $400 in the early 1980's.
If you are in the Austin, Texas area we will be delighted for you to pick up the bowl.

Dear Customers, I am passionate about family, friends and making a difference in our environment. I was on a Green bandwagon before it was called Green, For years I donated many beautiful items of clothing, furniture, china, silver and other "stuff" to the local agencies. Then, I realized if these agencies could sell my items why couldn't I do the same thing and get a little financial return on my investment. It worked other people found gems among my disposable assets and even better, I was still re-cycling to live Green.
