Can anyone help me with identifying this very pretty Bowl... There are no potter's marks but exquisite handpainted dragonfly and leaves would really love to know who made it - I adore it..

A couple of things would put me off, that base is slightly uneven. If this is porcelain, then I would expect more. Then the decs look a little uneven, not smooth, not alacritous. Just my opinion Shrugs

I think if you saw it in the flesh you'd probably change your mind about it..

The other pieces you have posted look pro, just not this one. Compare the foot on this one and the porcelain one you posted.

Looks hand drawn and hand painted rather than decals.

A bit too sketchy to be a professional imo, unless it’s a trial piece.

I've just found out that the other 2 vases this bowl came with was by Ben Barker the other was by Rick Henham - so I'm pretty excited... This is probably a top South west potter too, other things in their collection included a Peter Lane a (possible Paul Barron) and a Geoffrey Whiting so I think good chance it's a good professional potter.

It is a shape and black glaze that Ben Barker has used before now. Maybe he thought he’d have a go at a bit of drawing?

It could be by this potter - the work is almost identical, and is from a nearby location where the item was purchased - Maggie Andrews Porcelain...
