Description:

Plain Round is a term we use to describe a variety of wares by different potters. These wares are typically of a simple bulbous shape, unadorned and may have been produced for institutions such as hotels or restaurants and Inns. Durability was the drawing card, yet there is beauty in the simplicity of the lines. They were not necessarily manufactured to go with one body style but with many different ones. Plain Round can be found in children's and adult wares, as well as in bath and dinnerware items.

Finials may vary from knob to arches and others. As work progresses with the education committee, some of the body styles previously described as Plain Round may be segregated and given their own name. So watch this space!

 Plain Round pieces by William Brunt sport bracket handles and finials with raised dots following the shape around the edges.
