RARE Blue Transferware Salad Serving Bowl & TONGS Pastoral Berry Pickers / Cottage / Horse
Here is a complete salad serving set which includes matching tongs. The bowl is squared with scalloped rounded corners. This set is very seldom found with the serving utensils intact or if at all. It features a blue transfer printed Pastoral scene which is both in the inside Nd outside of the bowl. A charming cottage is nestled into the background while a man riding horseback crosses the scenic rock foot bridge. Women and children in bonnets are berry picking with their dogs off of the winding path. Perfect for serving up your favorite pasta, bread or salad or out on the kitchen table filled with fruit. Beautiful to simply display!
