This monumental Iroquois China "Super Bowl" (unmarked) was designed by Michael Lax in 1968 for part of his "Primaries" dinnerware line. Originally offered as a salad bowl, the sphere-shaped pottery shape could also be used as a jardiniere or other serving piece. Glazed in glossy white and measuring 11.25" diameter, it is intended to sit on the original wooden base. (One thumbtack is missing... the base assists you in rolling it around to the position you like.) The overall height can be made to vary from 10-7/8" to 13.75" depending on the angle of the opening. No nicks, chips, hairlines or repairs to this rare and decorative example.
