I have made dozens of these over the years & hoped they bought some pleasure to one of our ladies.
This is one I hoped I would never have to make,

Pete, it’s a lovely specimen but I am beside myself wondering ?

It is a beautiful piece and grabs my attention. What does it represent? Great embossing detail on the bottom.

Very nice job on the stand Pete, and best of luck with all at home.

By the way, I saw one of your bowls on Pinterest again.

It’s a beautiful piece. I’m sorry that it’s more personal than any of us would like. Good luck to your wife.
