Up for sale is this great old white ironstone compote footed bowl that measures a large 8" across the top and is 4 1/2" tall. I would say its probably a center piece fruit bowl. It is in great condition with no major scratches cracks or crazing.I copied the insert below from a web site that I found interesting. Knowles, Taylor & Knowles (KT&K) was a pottery company in East Liverpool, Ohio from 1854 to 1931. The original owners were: Issac Knowles, John Taylor, (Issac's son-in-law) and Homer Knowles (Issac's son). The pottery produced all types of wares from yellow ware, ironstone, and semi-vitreous dinnerware, but it is best known for the light-weight, translucent Lotus Ware. Produced mainly in the 1890s, Lotus was meant to compete with the successfull Belleek porcelain made in Ireland.
High cost and breakage forced K&TK to halt production of Lotus. The item "Vtg Antique K T & T White Stone China Ironstone Footed Bowl Compote X Large" is in sale since Friday, October 06, 2017.
