W.S. George Sugar Bowl - Romance Pattern - Bolero Shape - Vintage 1940s
Love is the flower of life... D.H. Lawrence
Founded by William Shaw George in 1904, the W.S. George Pottery Company operated four plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania where they made dishes for both private consumerism and the hotel industry. Successful up until the mid-century, W.S. George went bankrupt in 1955. Royal China Company purchased the pottery plants in an attempt to keep products in circulation, but RCC officially stopped production in 1960.
This marvelous rare sugar bowl, from the Romance pattern line, was made in 1943 and features their popular bolero design with thick ribbing, colorful flowers, and gold edging. Somewhere along its adventurous life it lost its lid, which now gives it the wonderful opportunity to become a pretty planter for your kitchen herbs and succulents.
