Vintage Maling Peony Rose Bowl Lustre Ware planted up with Lewisias. The bowl is in excellent condition aoart from a few original manufacturing flaws in the glaze. 21.5cm in diameter 10cm deep.


Maling pottery was founded at North Hylton near Sunderland in 1762, and transferred to Newcastle upon Tyne in 1817. It was Robert Maling’s son, Christopher Thompson Maling II, who took the business in a new and profitable direction in the 1850s. He devised a way to make pottery containers by machine, rather than by hand. This speeded up the production process and led to huge orders from manufacturers of goods as diverse as marmalade, meat and fish pastes, ointments and printing ink. The following three decades were to be Maling’s heyday with this Art Deco style bowl being produced in the middle of this ear. The pottery finally closed in 1963.


The unusual Lewisia plant makes an excellent indoor or outdoor patio potted plant. A clump-forming perennial which bushes up nicely, with fleshy rosettes of dark green leaves. Flowers prolifically for a long period if deadheaded regularly from spring to summer. Flowers range from pale to deep pink, apricot, orange and cream.

All our potted plants come with detailed care instructions. The plant can be re-planted to flower again next season and the bowl re-used (would be perfect for pot pourri) and added to your collection.
