Anthony Barson carp bowl?

Not seen any other and the seller says they had had it a while, but just not seen anything to compare it with? …Help?

It is a small deep bowl, like a breakfast bowl with carp decoration to the interior. The three carp inside the bowl are skillfully painted with a dark green brushed body and free sgraffito decoration for their eyes, mouth and body.

It’s nicely done – fast, free and very indicative with an economy of effort. The bowl has markings to the base but I have nothing to compare them against?

Anthony Barson sold his quirky ceramics at Briglin and there is photographs in the book.
