Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Example of the "Electric Scientific" Covered Bowl.
Dating to the early 20th century, this bowl is debossed on the bottom, "Electric Scientific" surrounding a Fist Holding Lightening Bolts. It was probably given away to help promote the introduction of electric stoves.
This beauty features a Double Rick-Rack Pattern on the Overhanging Rim in Blue, and a White Body of Lattice Hosting a Flower in Each Opening. The original lid repeats the lattice work and flowers in an elongated pattern. The base is 3 1/2" tall and 9 1/4" wide.
I can find this piece in a bail form on p. 171 in Terry Taylor and Terry and Kay Lowrance, Collector's Encyclopedia of Salt Glaze Stoneware. I can find no example of this bowl with the original lid like this one in stoneware archives.
Excellent Condition. The base has a single 1/8" chip on bottom of the overhanging rim and some fine crazing of age. The lid has a minor 3/16" flake on the outer edge and a 1/2" chip on the inside of the seating ring on the underside of the lid. No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration on either piece.
