Legras #2334 rose bowl, called "Boule Chatelaine" (chatelaine ball - I have no explanation why) in the 1898 Legras catalog. It stands a little over 4" (10.4 cm) tall with a 4¾" (12 cm) diameter. It has a typically Legras clear-cased pink-and-black spatter over a white-on-clear spatter ground. The underside shows a neatly ground pontil mark.
Too cheap and pretty to leave on the thrift store shelf. It has a surprisingly contemporary look for something well over 100 years old.
