Great retro decor, I don't know it's use, my husband recalls his grandmother calling it a berry bowl and she used it to wash vegetables in. It's 9 1/2" across, 10 1/2" measuring from handle to outer rim. 4 1/2 inches deep. Blue and cream color. I have pictured all the scratches and nicks. Excellent for display and use in a retro kitchen or will hold rolled up towels in the bathroom, knitting wool, etc.
