Translucent pale blue green. Knocked-off, uneven vertical rim; body with bulging side, then curving in to thick, flat bottom. On body, fifteen irregular, vertical ribs. Complete but cracked; a few pinprick bubbles; dulling, pitting, iridescence, and patches of milky weathering, with one area of thick soil encrustation on interior.
This is an unusual example of the so-called zarte Rippenschalen type of bowl since it does not have an outsplayed rim and concave neck.
Until 1881, collection of Jules Charvet, Le Pecq, Île-de-France; 1881, purchased from J. Charvet by Henry G. Marquand; acquired in 1881, gift of Henry G. Marquand.
