This bowl is a beautiful work of art and easy to date by the lovely fashionable ladies featured in the foreground. The bowl is about 5 5/8 inches in diameter. You could use this on a table but the small footed base has a hole that would make this very easy to hang. There is a green paint streak on the back I scraped some off with my fingernail the rest will probably come off if it bothers you. Steinbock has a name for quality and craftsmanship this bowl will not disappoint.
