Two (2) Wonderful Bennington Potters tall bowls originally designed by famed Japanese ceramicist Yusuke Aida sometime between 1961 and 1964. This line is referred to as “Classic Bennington” and the bowls are shape #1641, meant for soup or salad.
We’re uncertain whether or not this is from the original series or not – this glaze seems to be a later one, and we’ve heard that some of Aida’s 1600 shapes were repurposed by Bennington in later years. The glaze appears to be the discontinued “Black on Slate” color, according to Bennington’s website.
In great condition with no major damage. There is a manufacturing cut in the clay and a small dimple to the edge right above that, but these appear to be under the glaze – please see the last photo. One of the bowls also has a tiny bit of wear to the handles, may be a very small fleabite or glaze skip.
Bowls measure about 5.5″ wide (6″ wide handle to handle) and are about 2 1/4″ tall.
