Finally I discovered what my intriguing'Titanic' bowl is about... I knew it was special.. This is a rare mantel vase or fruit bowl from the. Harmony' range, the 2-tone colourway being produced for only a short period between 1957 and 1962.I found only one piece to compare with, in the same colours but not this shape. The black and lime green are a brilliant colour combination and the design was one of the most futuristic to have been produced by a major firm back then. Shiny black on the outside, when you look at it head-on, you see the lime green peeping through the holes, as well as from the rising curve. Inside the opposite edge (photos show this). It stands on an oval. Marked ENGLAND 439 on the underneath. It measures 30.5 cm long by 12 cm across and approximately 14 cm high. On the inside, you can see what looks like a rust mark with some light spots nearby. This is the main flaw. On close inspection, you begin to notice marks to the black, which look like wear but I think will have always been there since the making.
Strange, but the photos really exaggerate the marks to appear far worse than they are. Obviously I wanted to include photos to show what I can A few pinprick dimples under the black and what looks like a chip on the pedestal edge, but I don't think it is. I read somewhere that the black paint on these pieces was prone to damage - so this is in super condition.
A beautiful, scare piece which needs to be properly shown off! Thanks for looking, any questions, please ask.
