1902 “HM&S Chino” Raised Ornamentation Bowl.
This is one beautiful bowl! It has a patent date of 1897, but the cast date is 1902. Raised ornamentation bowls are extremely rare, and this one is in excellent condition for it’s age. There are a few minor scuffs, and no chips. The outlet of the bowl did have some internal cracks, they have been repaired, and are not visible on the exterior of the bowl. Here’s the cool part; this bowl is a 12″ rough low tank bowl. It will require a true 4″ waste and will not fit on today’s common 4″x3″ closet flanges, but that conversion is easier that moving the rough entirely. We are sure this bowl will not last long, grab it quickly!
