This attractive, four-footed porcelain 'rose bowl' is marked on the base with 'Wynton' and 'English Flosmaron make'. The history of Flosmaron can be traced back to the Thomas Lawrence factory at Longton, Staffordshire, England, who used the trade name Falconware. It is almost certain that Flosmaron pottery was made at the Falconware factory, the Flosmaron 'back stamp' being likely that of a wholesaler for whom it was made. Flosmaron was produced in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The rose bowl pictured above, featuring a side-saddle riding scene, would probably originally have had a brass mesh cover for the top.
Side Saddle Lady would like to thank Peter Birkett and Sheila Nicholson for the above information.
