    Is the origin of this piece Chinese or European I am hoping Chinese?

    For what it's worth I'm getting a European vibe - maybe some type of folk pottery. I doubt very much that it is American and it doesn't look like a Chinese design to me. JMHO. It's a neat bowl!

    Not Chinese and not Dutch.
    I do think European, but further south. Could be France, Spain, Portugal, they all have a lot of different regional styles. Spain and Portugal especially love blue painting on a white ground.

    Thanks dgbjwc and Any Jewelry

    lots of glaze pops if that terminology is acceptable in describing the grainy spots? I find these imperfectnesses is what I like most about it, because everything is not pure and perfect, the rawness of its beauty.

    I just call them imperfections. They are one of the charming features of folk pottery. Folk pottery is often made in small workshops, that don't have the ability to control every part of the process.

    For those kinds of marks I use the word "pitting". I agree with Any Jewelry that this type of pitting is common in folk pottery.

    I usually say glaze dimples!

    Of course, pitting. I used it in another thread about five minutes before answering this one.:banghead: I guess all my pitting was exhausted, on to another term.

    It could be, although Spanish Talavera is usually signed Talavera, in blue.
    But I agree, Spain is the strongest contender.
