Set of five ironstone soup bowls in the Hawthorn pattern manufactured by T. Furnival & Sons of Staffordshire Potteries between 1871 to 1890. The bowls are decorated with oriental-looking branches of flowers in pinks and yellows with green stems and leaves and trimmed in gold. The gentle scalloped rim is also trimmed in gold.
Each bowl measures about 9 1/4 inch diameter and stands about 1 1/2 inches high. There is crazing and slight wear of the gold trim around the edge. Some discoloration marks - please see all pictures.
Bowls have several marks on the bottom - stamp showing T. Furnival & Sons Hawthorn Cobridge Staff. There is an incised mark which is hard to make out but think it should be Furnival with a number. There is also a 16 stamped on the bottom.
There are no cracks or chips on any of these bowls. Considering the age, they are in very nice condition and would be usable if desired.
