The bowl I have looks like the Colonnes but has 2 columns. Red Wing hand painted on the bottom and the number 317 and USA with only the A being all there.
Five different sized bowls were made for the Colonnes dinnerware pattern. The number of columns depicted depends on the size of the bowl. The 5.5 inch sauce dish and the 6.5 inch cereal bowl had only one column. The 7.5 inch rim soup bowl had two columns. The 9 inch nappy (vegetable bowl) and 12 inch salad bowl each had three columns. The larger the bowl, the greater the surface area available for artwork.
The number 317 on the bottom of the bowl is a stock or lot number. It does not identify
the pattern or the item.
