Wedgwood Fairyland lustre octagonal bowl
Wedgwood Fairyland lustre octagonal bowl. Dana - Castle on a Road pattern to exterior panels with Trentham Bead borders on black ground. Fairy in a cage pattern to interior. Wedgwood 'Portland vase' maker's mark, 'WEDGWOOD ENGLAND' and pattern number Z5125 to underside.. CONDITION: Good. No restoration. No cracks. No hairlines. No chips. No flakes. Light scratches to both sides (only visible when held in the light). Slight rubbing to gilt in the bowl center. The bowl does not ring, however we guarantee it is undamaged and unrestored. We have examined it very carefully for restoration under UV light. It has been tested extensively using all the techniques we know. Our restorer also tested the bowl with a solvent (harmless to the bowl, but would dissolve any restoration). The test proved negative for restoration.
