One of the wonderful things about a compote is that they are so versatile. This one can be used for a variety of manners. Serve salad, vegetables or even your prized cookies at your next dinner party. A centerpiece with a beautiful flower or floral arrangement can be the highlight of your table. Compotes are always great to use in a smorgasbord or buffet style because you can save room since the bowl is up on a pedestal and takes less room on the side board. I like to use them in the kitchen for fruit or even as a large candle holder placing a large candle or two with some marbles or sand on bottom of dish. Your imagination can run wild with one of these great pieces. Overall size of this piece is 7 ½" in diameter across the fluted ruffled top and standing about approximately 7" tall. I believe this piece is made by Kemple Glass Works and the pattern is Quintec.
