can stand alone or used in many ways only limited by your imagination. It can be an accent art piece, or used to show off a few special treasures. It can also be used to serve appetizers, special desserts, fruits, a cheese plate, any kind of hor d'oeuves, you name it. We like it embraced with the flesh tone bowl pictured. That and other bowls can be found in Gifts Under $100. Either way it makes a wonderful gift for a special friend or family member.
