I have absolutely no idea what this might be, or actually, why I bought it. It is decorative. I think it must have been part of a dresser set or bathroom set. Perhaps it was intended to store cotton balls! I am just guessing. I always hope that some knowledgeable person will fill me in.
It reminds me of something from the sixties decor. In great shape, with a wee bit of gold loss.
The funny thing is that my guy comes home form an auction with gorgeous German Bayreuth cream soup bowls that have a similar rose on them. They were almost a match. The bowls went home with a daughter, but I still have them (for the moment at least). No idea what I’m going to do with it. The garage?
