Major restorations

ref. Robert’s ‘ Painted in blue’  page 4 for a group in this pattern, p 144 for more. This is a group of similar items, but are unattributed and by more than one potter. This bowl is another variation, but is comparable with a group titled curved fence group, P136 – in particular, the ‘stack of dishes’  tree and the roof on the house shown in fig. 238 is identical to the roof on the house inside this bowl, possibly providing another refining grouping for these interesting wares.
