The three footed bowl is 2 1/8" deep at the scalloped upper rim by 6 1/2" at its widest diameter. The scrolled feet are gold decorated with white toes, and the underside of the piece has molded ribs. The exterior and interior of the upper section are decorated with geometric designs and raised dots all done in gold. The interior well has several different flower blossoms and leaves outlined in raised gold, all with gold airbrushed accents. The upper rim has some minor wear from use, but the central decoration is strong and unworn. The bowl has no chips, cracks, stains, or repairs.
