A set of four original ringed Bauer California pottery nested mixing bowls circa 1940. They are the original vintage Bauer bowls in jade green, pale pumpkin orange, bright yellow, and pale yellow. The green #12 bowl is 9-3/8 inches diameter by 4-1/2" deep. Orange #18 bowl is 8 inches diameter, dark yellow #24 is 7 inches, and light yellow #20 is 6" diameter by 3 inches deep.
The dark yellow bowl has glaze flaking at the bottom and inside - the interior marks appear to be from vigorous utensil use. None have any chips, cracks, or fleabites. The bowls all have impressed mold numbers and USA on the bottoms. The glaze is so filled in that I couldn't get the marks to show up in my photos but I guarantee all four bowls are vintage originals, not the recent remakes.
