    I picked this up at Goodwill the other day. it's pretty small for a compote - only 7 inches across by 4.5 inches tall. the design reminds me of an American regionalist painting of the 30s-40s. no marks that i can see. anyone recognize it? what was it used for? if it was for a cake, then it could only have held a cupcake.

      thank you SEAN68, gargoylecollector, and surfdub66! yes, gargoyle - it appears to be a barn in winter scene. surfdub - you gave me an idea for what i'm going to use it for - to hold my business cards at the nursery!

      It's Very nice, whatever it was for. I'd probably use it as you are, to keep keys on :)
