It has a round form and it is carved in her classic “cameo style”. There are alternating traditional step design clouds and more rounded clouds. The bowl was fired to a gunmetal coloration. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Rose”. It is in very good condition with no crack, restoration or repair.
