Found this along with the ruffle bowl so I thought I'd better grab it at half price. When it rains it pours goodies ! There was one exactly like this on Worthpoint's website that sold but I don't know for how much. Not paying their insane subscription fee to find out either. This one has had it's original glass replaced with plexiglass and it was obviously opened but not damaged. Very nice bright colors with the artist signature and title in the upper left hand corner. -Mike-
