Pierced Bowl

Shown below is an interior view of this pierced bowl.

Pattern Name: Landing of Gen. La Fayette at Castle Garden New York 16 August 1824

Pattern Category: Events

Object Type: Dinner and Dessert Wares


Here is a bowl with a different sort of piercing.  Rather than the lattice-like piercings more commonly see, this has finger holes.  This style, inspite of it being oblong, was generally used as a compote or fruit container.
