    One of my favorite Limoges pieces. I bought it at the Mountain Motel Antique Shop in Easley, South Carolina. It's about 13 inches tall and in a teardrop shape. I had never seen anything like it so I had to have it. There was no price tag on it so the lady had to call the owner of the piece. When she said $25.00, I acted all cool about it but when I got outside of the shop I jumped up and down for joy!

      Very pretty! I don't know much about my piece except that I think it's a newer piece and not an antique. I still like it. Thanks so much for sharing your comments and photos with me.

      Here is a link to an eBay listing for the original RS Prussia bowl that this modern piece attempts to copy.

      Oh wow! Thank you rjkinkent! I appreciate you showing me that. I really like that bowl too but $900.00 is a little out of my price range!
