Dianthus Barbatus (Sweet William) Low Bowl


Portmeirion Botanic Garden

A Portmeirion Botanic Garden low bowl featuring the Dianthus Barbatus (Sweet William).

The bowl measures approximately 8 1/2 inches in diameter by 1 3/4 inches deep.

The bowl doesn't have a scratch through the stamp on the base however I believe it to be of second quality.

  • Second quality 
    Items classed as seconds have failed one or more of the manufacturer's stringent manual inspections for quality. This may be due to a marginal fault to the shape of the item (e.g. might be slightly lob-sided), the size or weight (e.g. the item might be slightly under or over the specified accepted size/weight), the finish (e.g. any print or decoration might be offset or slightly lighter/darker than the manufacturer's standard), or a number of other aspects that the manufacturer doesn't think is perfect enough. Second-quality items are usually denoted by a mark or scratch through the manufacturer's back stamp, but they are still perfectly functional. If you are happy to accept slightly less-than-perfect quality, seconds can be a good buy, as they are cheaper than their first quality equivalent.
  • New - excellent 
    Excellent items are in perfect condition with no blemishes, marks or wear.
