This heavy brass bowl is an eye-catching unique piece. It has etchings all around, of landscapes, seascapes(even a sea serpent) plants, flowers--you find it and name it! It is 9" across, 4" tall, a beautiful addition to oriental and/or brass collections. The interior of the bowl has a matte finish and while the interior is not all one color it is smooth to the touch.
