Lovely crystal centerpiece bowl. It's well crafted and designed and is really nothing less than what I was expecting. It looks just like it's pictured.

There is nothing like Finnish design. I have several pieces of Iittala glassware, and it is pure art! The quality is superb. Love it.
functional and elegant

Have long wanted an attractive large diameter shallow bowl for fresh grapes and other similarly sized fruit. This bowl fills the need precisely.
