Anyone able to date and loacte the origin of this large terracota bowl?

I think its British but know these are incredibly hard to allocate to a region. Hoping someone out there is able to identify the clay marks after firing to a certain clay and also which century it was made. I am thinking early 19thc due to poor clay quality?

Yes, difficult to say, plus they were also made in Europe. I've seen a lot at outdoor fairs, which have been shipped over from France. This may well be French.

I'd say french or more likely spanish they still make them so age can only be judged by the wear

Wrong colour glaze for Verwood but it looks a little more English than French/Spanish to me but I wouldn't put money on it. Loads of continental rustic pots have come into this country in recent years as Naomi said.

in Spain the glaze colour is generally the same as this and I have seen this shape thousands of times too so Spanish would be my guess
