World of Water / Museum / Fish and Flowers of the Sea in one bowl

Pot Pouri Bowl

What’s not to like!

It’s got the  golden sea plants (formerly known as ‘seaweed’), equally golden fish, and a glaze  of the very ‘deepest sea blue’.

The bowl was made by Crescent & Sons (George Jones & Sons Ltd) around  1873 when  ‘Crescent’ was registered as the company’s trademark.

And at the other end of the bathroom scales from Ducketts’ heavy plain brown “Clencher”, is this, the “Shanks’ Patent Independent Spray Bath”.
