I found this one in an antique store about 10 years ago after a long search for one that I could afford for $65.00. I have used this bowl for fruit and almost anything to do with decorating, it is so versatile. This last Christmas it served as a center piece in my living room. I almost considered getting rid of this a couple years ago when I changed my decorating style but being a country girl at heart I packed it away instead. When I moved into my home last May I decided to change my decor back to my roots and go with farm house style. So out it came and it fits right in.
