    This bowl has always been one of my favorites. It is very delicate; very thin. It is cracked almost in half but has stayed together all these years. The colors are so beautiful and vivid, almost like a peacock. I've never been able to identify the marks. Anybody have any ideas? I don't know about age, either, because a lot of my maternal grandmother's things were actually my great-grandmother's.

    The last picture is sort of my little "shrine" to my relatives and their collectibles that have spurred my own interest in collecting. The table everything is sitting on is my paternal grandmother's. The mosaic in the background, however, is a recent thrift store find.

      I need to post a photo of just the mosaic. I have been thinking of making a table out of it but I love it the way I am currently using it.

      Nice bowl. The year of production was 1921 the mark that looks like a palm frond; and the 9 under the mark tells us it was made in September that year. The litle house is in fact the Lazarus gate Of the PZH factory...the Plazuid Factories. The B next to it on the right is the artists mark.
