This is a beautiful hand painted enameled Nippon bowl. It has a very ornate gold enameled trim around the inside of the rim. It is footed and each of the feet has a gold circle on the front. It is perfect for fancy soaps, trinkets or jewelry. I like to use these dishes for soaps on my vanity. It is a very pretty piece and has no damage of any kind. It is 2 1/2" tall and 5 1/4" across. Just beautiful.
