The photo represents the item well. There are no surprises when opening the box. I feel like I purchased a museum piece and can't stop thinking about it.
We use it as a fruit bowl. Provides a nice pop of color when filled with fruit and actually holds a good amount of fruit.

What a great piece on our kitchen counter. I love simple, functional and original pieces that are useful too, and this bowl fit the bill to a T! Our kitchen is a combo of white appliances, copper flecked backsplash, brushed nickel fixtures, light maple cabinets, and granite countertops w/browns, greys, black, cream, white and copper throughout. This bowl was perfect. It reminds us of pieces we've seen in both Spain and Greece- bit old world and striking- evoking a feeling that it's a piece that may have been handed down with love to the next generation. The only thing that I haven't yet played with is the copper stand. The three thin extended prongs (?) are not even close to hugging the bowl, yet it sits in the stand and is balanced perfectly??? I may play with them and bend them so they're closer to the sides of the bowl- just haven't done that yet, as I don't want to mess with the balance. Has anyone else encountered this, and if so, what did you do? Currently it's holding many, many mangoes, and though it was a bit smaller than I expected, it's capable of holding a lot! We've received many compliments from friends and family alike. It's that unique. Get this bowl- we love it, and I'm certain you will too!

I am using one of these bowls to hold fresh fruit on my kitchen counter. Mid century modern style fits my decor perfectly.
I love almost everything I get from Uncommongoods, but this was a bit of a miss. The design in general is nice, but the bowl does not fit well in the stand and the stand looks poorly welded and is too rough to put on our wood table.
Exactly as pictured. Beautiful and well-made. Worth the price
Not sure how she chose to use it, but it is lovely!
The first bowl that arrived was damaged. The leg on the stand snapped off. I called the company and it was replaced with ease! I didn't even need to deal with the hassle of sending back the damaged item. Great customer service.
