    I ran across this at a local thrift store and could not pass it up. The finish and glazing are beautiful. The inside if the bowl has somewhat textured finish which aids in lathering (when I bowl lather). Nice size. Good ergonomics for hand holding. The maker's mark on the bottom indicates it was made in 1997. Wish it could talk as the journey is most likely interesting.

    You knew it was perfect for what you want it for the second you saw it didn't you? Scores like that are fun!

    I do enjoy surfing the junk shops and you have found something that would definitely jump out and say "buy me" if I were still a bowl lathering shaver. None-the-less; great score!

    Yup!! Ran my left thumb through the handle, rested the bowl in my palm, and it was love at first sight.:happy093:
