Large Retro Leather Backed Bowl

R350.00

Rather frustratingly I can’t make out the signature on this wonderfully crazy bowl, but going on the style and construction I think it’s most likely Italian, dating to the middle of the 20th century. Unusually the base of the bowl is wrapped in leather, which is something I’ve seen with pieces of Italian art pottery, and nowhere else really, but if anyone else has other ideas I’m open to suggestions!

Sadly the leather on the base of the bowl is quite badly worn, and someone’s done a pretty shoddy job of trying to cover up the wear, but on the plus side this isn’t anything that you’d really notice unless you picked the bowl up and had a squiz underneath! It would also look great hung on a wall (if you could somehow affix a hook to the bowl), and again you wouldn’t notice the torn leather then either. All you would see is that wonderful shape, incredible glazing and whacky decoration – pretty amazing really!
