The bowls are in excellent shape. Nice solid feel. Shaped well. And none of that shallow-side nonsense that makes for an annoyance when serving something with a lot of juice or sauce. Nice, good bowls. Somebody was crazy to donate them to a thrift shop. Or somebody must have died.
According to bits I found with help of Mr. Google. Oxford Ware was a line from Oxford Pottery, which was merged into Universal Potteries. Like much plain American pottery from potteries in Ohio, the prices aren't high. They might sell in a vintage/tique for $15 to $20 each. I definitely found a find. Two finds.
And they're a beautiful blue...which goes with none of the paint colors in the little house and isn't part of the decoration scheme, but continues my tendency to find and be drawn to blue pottery. Blue for Baby June, as Molly Keane writes in Time After Time. I like red, too. And greens. But blue always has been my color.
