Arabia Meri (sea) decoration is a beautiful combination of hand-painted black and brown stripes suggestive of waves reaching the shoreline, with little pigment spots blown underneath a bright sea-blue coloured glazing. These enchanting little spots are like tiny marine creatures or pebbles underneath the waves. This technique gives each item a unique and softly undulating surface. The series has a relaxed and cosy atmosphere.
The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel.
A bowl is a round, open-top container to serve hot and cold food. You can use it for serving soup, salad, yogurt or as a mixing bowl. Heat-resistant oven dish or a small casserole, suitable for cooking food in an oven. You can serve it directly from the oven to table.
There are some minor imperfections in this beautiful vintage bowl. A few tiny scratches and signs of wear, and lighter spots on the glazing. The additional photos show examples.
