This bowl is 7" in diameter and 2.5 inches high. I use crystal in this instance to say it is clear glass, not lead crystal. I almost passed this by but the fact the the rim of the bowl is ground flat made me take a closer look. I think it is decent quality, though the design is not sharply defined which makes it difficult to photograph. I suspect it was a covered bowl that lost its cover. The rim seems too shallow for a frog. There is not much wear to this piece, but it has a feeling of age to it. The bird has a long thin beak, similar to a humming bird and I think that is what it it supposed to be. There are 12 roses with accompanying leaves and stems around the bowl. I could not find any other examples of this bowl. Any thoughts on this bowl are appreciated.
