Silver Bowl and Lemon



"Silver Bowl and Lemon"
6"x 8" oil on Gessobord
$175 + sh&h

I love silver and reflections! This silver pot is called a "slop bowl" or "tea waste bowl" in my silver set found on ebay. The function is to be available for tea leaves and cold water or other discards, but really! Can't there be a better name for such a fine object? I did find two alternate terms that sound better to my ear, alms dish and ort bowl.
