Description: It took us almost 50 years to find this Clobbered, Scalloped, Deep Bowl! Another one was the frontispiece of Jane Wilson’s 2nd booklet published in 1966 and also pictured in her 3rd booklet, 1977, on page 10. That bowl is now in the Macculloch Hall Historical Museum in Morristown, NJ. An example was not in Herbert Schiffer’s book.

The 18 scallops and borders are intricately gilded and partially worn. The clobbered colors are pink, green, yellow, blue, black and orange. Flowers, leaves, butterflies, and vegetables adorn the insides. It is said that such gilding and clobbering was done in Europe, possibly in the Netherlands. The outside has the standard 3 blue flowers decoration.
