    I found this bowl and cover at a market here in Sydney a few years ago.
    I was attracted by the simplicity and elegance of the design.
    Recently I've learnt that it may be a 'chocolate box'.
    I especially liked the finial and the colour was attractive in itself.
    It is a fine representation of the period called "Nieuwe Zakelijkheid" translated as New Objectivity or New Pragmatism, a Dutch phrase for Modernism. It follows Bauhaus principles where colours were not allowed to lay stress on ceramics or distract from the model/shape.
    It has an impressed mark: Studio Fris Made in Holland.

    "Decoration is 'useless, unpractical and diverts the attention’."

    The Aardewerkfabriek Fris began in Gouda but moved in 1947 to Edam at the old Fokker factory works. The artistic director was (Willem Hendrik) W.H. de Vries., but there were other designers too of post-war domestic wares including Nel Bruynzeel, Dick Gerrits, Hannie Terpstra, Emile Truyen, Jan Lucassen en Floris Meydam. The factory closed in 1969 after having obtained an important position in the post-war pottery market.

      Great bowl. Love the little decoration it's got, specially those three dark rings that cannot be seen from above... I love it!

      Hiya V, I agree with Austro, the stripes set it apart. Ripples in a pond.
      Hope you are doing well!

      Now hold on you lot!
      I've been a little distracted by a silver jug that has caught my eye!
      I'm on my knees begging for mercy.
      Mind you this silver item may well be about subservience in its various forms.....

      Many thanks to AmberRose and a box of Kleenex,........ no, a hankie to dry those tears. And to Hedgewalker thanks a million for the comment and for looking after Amber's interests!

      Hedge, you are my knight in shining armour!
      V, your only excuse would be a cool piece you were considering for your collection.
      Thank you for the hankie to dry my river of tears :)X
