just for show really, but also happy if anyone wishes to use for their own private library.
Struck me as being a little less than ordinary with this incurved top rim, and the pattern did make me think of some of the ABP cut pieces.
Simon Cottle describes this design as 'Imitation Cut' - a description which it's possible he has taken from the factory records, but I don't know for certain - but it certainly does a very good job of looking the part.
The Rd. No. and the factory trade mark are inside at the base of the bowl, on opposing sides.
I would have included the original Board of Trade drawing from The National Archives, but seems I don't have this - but will rectify in the coming days.
