Very simple and elegant large Black Basalt Wedgwood bowl measuring (6 1\8 inches) across.

The base is impressed Wedgwood Made in England

It is a hard black vitreous stoneware, named after the volcanic rock basalt and manufactured by Josiah Wedgwood from about 1768. Wedgwood's black basalt ware was an improvement on the stained earthenware known as "Egyptian black" made by other Staffordshire potters
