Set of 4 Vintage Green Pottery Nesting Bowls

Wonderful set of 4 vintage green pottery nesting bowls. These are the perfect shelf pieces for your vintage inspired kitchen. They would also be lovely planted with your favorite herbs on your kitchen windowsill.

The bowl measurements are as follows.

Largest, 8 3/4" in diameter by 4 3/4" tall.
Second largest, 7 7/8" in diameter by 4 1/4" tall.
Medium, 7 1/4" in diameter by 3 7/8" tall.
Smallest, 5" in diameter by 2 3/4" tall.

There are no chips, but there is all over crazing, a few hairline cracks (see last photo), and light staining from a lifetime of use. They are loaded with character.

They are unmarked, but based on the design I believe they date to the 1930's, possibly earlier.

c. 1930's
