This is an early English blue and white transfer print porcelain bowl, marked "Marathon" and what appears to be "P" "L" "F" and "5" or "P" "F" with a faux Chinese mark in underglaze blue; the outer surface of the bowl is molded with fluting and branches and has a blue and white floral transfer design on two sides; the overall crackle pattern and the blue glaze splatters outside the design area seem to represent the early period technique; condition: several glaze imperfections and minor flakes of glaze lost; measurement: 5 in. diam.
