Graverens Bowl

This little Graverens bowl belonged to my grandma.  I love the notch in the glaze on the rim - I'm guessing it's the result of the glaze dripping/running while it was fired, although it's funny to think that maybe the glazer had a hiccup while working on it.  This one has a Graverens sticker on the bottom, and the shape and pattern numbers: 960/489.  And, like so many of the pieces from this pottery (as well as Elle), it has a chip.  There's something about the clay that they used - if you even look at it sideways, it'll chip!  That's just the sign of a well-loved bowl, though.
