This bowl sat on my parents' dresser forever, both at my childhood home in Texas, and later when they retired to a condo in Nevada. I don't remember it being used as a serving dish, as it is described on eBay, and not sure how old it is. Dad used it for keys, change, pens, and ephemera, and "Dad's bowl" was sacred--if you dared to take it out, you put it back before he noticed! I looked it up and it's from the Frankoma pottery company in Oklahoma--where my grandparents lived (bottom has "Frankoma 226" ). BTW, I use it as my key bowl now too--in memory of my dad.
