Have to admit I was harbouring thoughts of a well known maker for this piece - but think it will remain just a thought, and I'm taking a risk, but feel the origin is the U.K., so here goes. Very pale straw colour, 230mm dia., and about 115mm high - with ground and polished pontil scar, and lot of wear on the underside of the circular foot. What is noticeable is the six sided mould impression on the foot (which can be seen from the top also), although this is optical moulding only (in reality it is circular). Does this quite obvious feature indicate a particular maker, or was this quite a common effect on the feet of bowls in general. Bearing in mind the wear, I would hazzard a guess at certainly pre second war, and possibly back to the 1930's. It rings beautifully for a long time, and it goes without saying of course that it is un-marked. Would be very appreciative of anyone's thoughts, and as always thanks for looking. Yours sincerely, Paul S.
