1930's Solian Ware Bowl by Soho Pottery Cobridge England - House & Flower Landscape Scene
In Spanish, the word solian means "they used to," which is a great little string of words for this vintage bowl, who used to serve as someone's cheerful soup or cereal holder.
In business from 1904-1944, Soho Pottery was located, at first, in Tunstall, England nestled among a plethora of other pottery manufacturers. In the mid-1910's, the factory moved to Cobridge, England where this bowl was born. An unusual pattern that doesn't seem to have any matching mates on the internet, this bowl features a red-roofed house tucked among a grove of trees and accented with blousy red and blue flowers. An idyllic scene, the bright colors and cheerful design are a sure-fire way to start your day with a smile as you enjoy your morning cereal or oatmeal.
- Rare, hard-to-find pattern
- Gorgeous design
- Stamped on bottom with maker's mark

The gold rim bears fading and rub marks. The imagery is clear, bright and crisp. One small 1/4" inch size chip is located on the backside under the rim. This is an old chip so it is smooth to the touch and does not affect the constitution of the bowl in any way.
Measures 6.5" inches (width) x 6.5" inches (length) x 1.75" inches (height)
