This is a handmade pottery product made in 1988 by Judy Smith It is great looking and utilitarian, a fantastic mixing bowl for people who cook large! It's a beautiful blue with a decorative white pattern inside. Any country kitchen would benefit from this just sitting there, It measures 27" around including the handle and is 4 1/2" high. It is well made and sturdy--well, it's lasted in one piece since 1988, which is more than I can say for a lot of things. Job well done, Judy!
