This bowl is perfect for serving a cheese ball or other appetizing spread, salsa, or dip. The bowl was thrown on the potter's wheel using a speckled stoneware clay. The next day the foot was trimmed and the handle added. The bowl has a space on the side to hold the small, 4" wood-handled spreader (included). Stoneware keeps hot foods hot and cold foods cold; you’ll love it for your next get-together. It is glazed with a tan glaze that lets the speckles of the clay show through. The rim has been glazed with a rust color. The bowl is 4 1/2" wide, 2 1/2" tall. This is ready to ship. I also have a brown glazed bowl available.
