    It's only a few months since I posted a similar rose bowl, delighted to have found one at last! Now I've found another, this time with added enamelling and gilding though less iridescence, except for the base. Fifteen lobes by the way.

    Diameter 16.gcm./6.5 inches

      Isn't it funny how things seem to turn up all at once?

      Just so. One collector I know totally believes that there will definitely be a third!

      I'm asking from ignorance so please don't think this a challenge. I see these low bowls referred to as rose bowls and flower arrangers and while I suppose they may work for some small woodland arrangements, I can't help but wonder if the original intention may have been as sachets or potpourri holders. Filling these with dry aromatics and putting them in drawers or linen chests seems an efficient use and much easier to clean than using them with water. Any thoughts?

      artfoot I have no idea.....but that doesn't usually stop me! The wider flatter shapes like this would be well suited to potpourri placed to perfume a room, and ornamental too. They would be less suitable for drawers or wardrobes, due to shape and possible breakage.

      However some rose bowls are plenty big enough for roses, tulips, carnations etc. And finally some flowers are small.....hence posy vases. I guess once you'd bought the rose bowl the choice of use was yours.

      I've added a different image four to try to show the great disparity there can be between rose bowls

      Thanks Peggy (and Malkey) - it was really just the low, flat ones that I was wondering about though that little green one would work as well. I have one of the deeper ones - - with an arranger grid that has additional interior grid that would be useless at best for potpourri but great for holding stems in place.

      Malkey, when potpourri was trendy for a while, some years ago, the bowls used for it were indeed plain, They were low and the rim curved inward slightly.

      So sweet!! I love the little dark green feet, and to find one with enamel work is special - you don't often see that! This is lovely, Peggy!
    9. sklo42 sklo42, 3 years ago
      Thank you Michelle, certainly I've not seen enameling on any other shape but this. Now I've said that another shape with enameling will turn up!

      Just lovely Peggy! Nice find!

      This is just wonderful Peggy. So many lobes, beautiful enameling, great feet, and I love the low profile of it. That overhead shot is art.
      It's a new favourite.
