That is a beautiful bowl. Definitely one I would pick up too. Hope all is well with you. Best wishes, Tammy

I feel pretty sure that's an Indian papier mache bowl, probably from the Kashmir Valley. That paisley design was brought over from England when the Moslems moved into India. It was a steal at 99 cents, because if it's got any age, it's worth a lot more than that, but it's so beautiful! Well done....
