This is a beautiful Grindley wash bowl that has become separated from it's set. It is ex-large, at 18" across, and octagonal shaped! It is white with a green transferware floral design. These huge bowls make wonderful fruit, vegetable or potpourri bowls, and make a very bold statement.
At Christmas fill with greenery and ornaments, or for Halloween fill with gourds and pumpkins for a fall splash of color. On Valentines day this bowl holds all your colorful Valentine cards! In summer fill with ice and beverages for the celebration on your patio. The uses are never ending!
Of course if you are missing the wash bowl to your set this will complete your Doreen pattern!
