I have a few questions about this piece.
1. What IS it? It's too small to be a cake stand, plus it's shaped like a very shallow bowl. Compote?
2. What do you call the fine woven (reticulated?) work around the edges?
3. I'm certain it was only meant for decoration, as the handpainted cherry branch would be worn away by use, but how is this a practical piece of decor? It would be tough to display in a cabinet and hard to protect out on the furniture.
Its lovely and in perfect condition, but I can't find any "mates" to it online.
Thanks in advance for any help you have to share!!
