This footed bowl with raised and handpainted fruit design was produced by Thomas Forester and Sons Ltd. at his Phoenix Works pottery factory in Staffordshire.  Better known for elaborate Majolica pieces, in the 1930's Forester started to produce ranges of much less formal Teaware, which included the Arboretum Ware design of which this bowl is a good example.

The bowl shows normal wear; one crack and crazing to the glaze on the inside,  but remarkably only a few areas of chipped painted trim.
