Added a hard-to-find item to my collection last week, this 30's ice bowl. I went outside my comfort zone (a.k.a. eBay BIN) by participating in a live on-line auction event to acquire this piece. I've long been on the look out for the bowl, so the listing caught my eye. I was a little surprised to bring it home for a fraction of book value (took it with just 3 bids). The bowl does have a 2" closed crack and slight chip, which probably explains low interest (fracture=fraction). Still, the damage is hardly noticeable and I'm more than happy to provide a home for this sweetie. I plan to "borrow" yet another outstanding idea from one of my friends here at CW by filling it with fake ice and 6 vintage bottles of Delicious and Refreshing for display.
