Vtg 1950s McCoy Art Pottery USA Pink Petal Console Shallow Planter Bowl Vase USA
This beautiful large MCM pottery bowl is by an American Art Pottery Company, and is in excellent vintage condition and measures approximately 3 ¾” high at the edge, 10” across its body, and 6 ½” across the top opening. This type of MCM Console Bowls, in various shapes, were popular during the 1950s and were used as planters, floral arrangement vases, or as bulb forcing vases in late winter or early spring, and as a dish for entertaining at cocktail parties, when pink was a popular decorating color for the home and many MCM china sets of dishes would have complemented this bowl. It is often called a scalloped or petal bowl because of the unique shape of the sides. It is in of heavy construction in pottery, which is reflected in the shipping charges, and in excellent mint vintage condition with no chips, cracks, or breaks. I have always believed this bowl to be produced by McCoy, since my mother had the exact one that she purchased new, and referred to it my entire life as McCoy. Likewise, this color of matt pink was used on many McCoy pieces including my Quilted jardinière and several flower pots. In going through my reference books, however, I noticed that the shape of these petal panels also resembles a small petal bowl produced by Niloak. I’d welcome information from anyone who knows the maker for sure, and would like to share that information with me.
