Rose CHINA BOWL, Pierced Bowl, Formalities, Baum Brothers, Candy Snack Dish, Bread Dish, Gold Handled Bowl, Sweetheart Rose, Christmas Gift


  • Details
    This charming gold handled oval bowl with decorative cut outs is part of a collection of an "old country rose" type pattern called Formalities by the Baum Brothers Company. A collection of pieces in this pattern, including 2 bowls of this design, came to me as part of an estate.

    The bowl is 11" long x 7" wide x 2 3/4" deep. It would made a lovely serving dish for finger foods, candy or snacks, dinner rolls or bread. I can also see it as part of a lovely centerpiece with a pillar candle in the middle surrounded by foliage or rose petals.

    Each of the pieces in this Formalities collection will work beautifully alone, in combination with other pieces from the collection, or mixed with pieces from coordinating patterns. If you choose to combine pieces from this collection they can coordinate beautifully to carry out a theme at both ends of a dining table or buffet, or on several card tables or occasional pieces in a room where you are entertaining.

    Since this piece is in unblemished new condition it will also makes a lovely thoughtful gift with or without candy included. It's a perfect look for Valentine's Day when roses are the most beloved sweetheart flower.

    If you decide to purchase more than one piece from Eclectica Gallery please convo ahead and I can reduce shipping for the combined purchase.
