I like the extravagance of it. It is smooth on top but the underneath of the white part is gritty giving it a textured look. The green rim looks pleated but then it rises and falls in dramatic swoops. It all sits on a base metal pedestal.
It measures 15 cm/6 inches across the top. It may have been for bonbons (only a few) but more likely for visiting cards. It just took my fancy one day!
If I've got its use wrong please tell me.
