This glazed ceramic mixing bowl was produced by Crown Lynn in the 1950s, and is decorated with tiered layers. It has a pink rim, and the colour gradually fades to cream on the exterior. The interior is also cream.

On the base of the bowl is the Crown Lynn 'Star and Tiki' mark, used on much of the company's early domestic ware. Thousands of these beehive bowls were produced in the 1950s and 1960s, and they were available in a range of colours and patterns.
