ian price12/10/11 Yes I remember showing Nigel a copy of the pattern number 8985. This bowl looks like an uncut version of the bowl
s.l.28/09/11 Thankyou for that information. Any idea of age and designer for this shape
nigel benson27/09/11 I have a version of this bowl, which is recorded in the archives held at the Museum of London. Ian Price kindly showed me his personal (mobile) record of the drawing for my bowl. It is the same colour and shape, so my guess is that it is indeed right, despite the vote for 'No'. Mine is the vote for yes.
